In the developed world many take the availability of food for granted. We go to the store and are presented with countless choices. Yet behind all that food is the sweat from someone’s hard labor. Let us pray for them today.
Almighty and loving Father,
be with those who till the earth.
Guide their hands
and bless their harvest,
that they may reap
the rewards of their labor,
and all may share in their bounty.
If you’re going grocery shopping today, when you get your produce offer this prayer for the farmers who worked the soil. If you aren’t, offer this prayer before your meals.
