We thank you for the crops in the field.
We thank you that they came to maturity:
That they survived drought and flood;
That they were not lost to heat and cold;
That neither pest nor weed overcame them.
We pray that the weather for the harvest be fair.
We pray that tractors and combines work smoothly.
We pray that the farmers be kept safe in their labors,
As they work every day, all day, to bring in the crops.
We thank you for the Spirit of Abundance in your World -
Forgive us for our small spirits of scarcity in our hearts!
We thank you that we have plenty to give to others -
Forgive us please when we live in fear and uncertainty!
Amen and AMEN.
