Prayer written over a picture of grain field. Text reads “Gracious and living God, We thank you for our ancestors, for their wisdom and knowledge to know the land. We give you thanks for all of creation and know that you have given us charge to be stewards of air, land, water and all living things. We thank you for those who grow food and farm. We thank you for those who labor in the fields. We thank you for those who bring crops to market. We thank you for merchants who give us access to your bounty. We thank you for the hands that make and prepare our daily bread. Give us nourishment to do your work in the world; that fed, we can feed others. May our work and faith in you create that heavenly community where all are fed. Amen.”
