Prayer for Fine Weather and for the Farming Community
Let us pray for fine weather, so vital for the growth of grass for livestock on our farms. Reward the spirit of cooperation which continues among the farming community as they share dwindling fodder supplies. Bless the farming organisations and cooperatives and the Department of Agriculture for sourcing new fodder at home and abroad and providing finance at this time of crisis.
All-powerful and ever-living God, we find security in your forgiveness. Give us the fine weather we pray for, so that we may rejoice in your gifts of kindness, and use them always for your glory and our good. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
