Prayer of Thanksgiving: Seedtime and Harvest

Here’s a prayer of thanksgiving for the harvest season.  It comes from the Farming Community Network.


O God our Father,
we thank you that once again
you have fulfilled your gracious promise that,
while earth remains,
seedtime and harvest shall not fail.

We bless you for the kindly fruits of the earth
which you have given to our use.

Teach us, when we pray,
that it is not by bread alone that we live;
and grant us evermore to feed on Him
who is the true bread from heaven,
even Jesus Christ our Lord;
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit,
be all honour and glory,
world without end. Amen.
