Today we come to You in gratitude for the farmers who work so diligently to provide us with food. Your word says in Psalm 104:14-15 that You make grass grow for livestock and plants for man to cultivate, so he may bring forth food from the earth and wine to cheer man’s heart.”
We ask that You bless the hands of those laboring in the fields and protect them from harm as they bring forth the earth’s bounty. Your word tells us in Isaiah 55:10 that for as the rain and snow come down from heaven, they do not return there but water the earth, making it sprout, giving seed to sowers and bread to eaters, we pray that You send down rain and sun in due season, so our harvest may be abundant.
We pray that You would grant farmers wisdom to effectively work the land and care for the animals that provide us with food. Your word tells us in Proverbs 12:11 that Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread; but whoever follows worthless pursuits lacks sense. May they be diligent in their endeavors and find success in their labors.
Lord, we humbly ask that You bless the food grown and harvested. Your Word states in 1 Timothy 4:4-5 that everything created by God is good if it is received with thanksgiving; for it has been made holy by your word and prayer. We thank You for nourishing us through food; may You bless it and make it holy.
In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
