The bean field on the church ground was taken out this afternoon. Another harvest season is upon us. Pray for our farmers as they bring food to our tables. Below is the prayer we offer from Easter Sunday through Christ the King Sunday which happens to be the Sunday before Thanksgiving.
You bless the earth to make it fruitful, bring forth in abundance whatever is needed for the support of our lives. Prosper; we pray the work of farmers as they bring food to our table. Grant them seasonable weather that they may gather in the fruit of the earth, and thus proclaim Your goodness with thanksgiving. Cause all people who give thanks over their food to treat those who produce it with honor and respect. May we see by this noble vocation that through them You feed the world.
