“A Prayer For Farmers”

May 2, 2022

Father, Your grace and tender mercies are present in the midst of perplexing situations that develop in our lives and the lives of those whom we love. Your sovereign power working within us takes the bad things that Satan hurls at us and turns them into testimonies of praise and thanksgiving when we seek to glorify You in the midst of suffering. Only a God like You can help us not to be overcome by evil, but to overcome evil with good. As we share in Your sufferings, we also share in Your glory. Be glorified in our lives; in the good, in the bad, and in the mysterious circumstances of our lives, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

A prayer for farmers: Loving God, we pray for the many farmers and their families involved in the demanding field of agriculture. Their work is often dangerous and oppressed with uncertainty through weather, pests and disease. We pray for those whose livelihoods affected by disease, falling prices, and by the shortcomings of disaster management. May they know that the community they attempt to serve stands alongside them in their need. We ask You to shield their hearts and minds from bitterness and anger and to grow their trust in Your faithful hand of protection and provision, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
