Prayer for the Harvest


Living God,

Our strength and help

We turn to you in our distress.

May the spirit of compassion

Comfort and protect your people.

In the parches lands and failed harvests

We see you hungry.

May the shadow of that hunger

Be broken by the light of your hope.

In our hearts we hold a vision

Of a better world.

May we, by our actions

Bear witness to your love.

Linda Jones Cafod
