Right now, farmers in the Prairies and across Western Canada are having to live with drought conditions, much like many of the farmers we serve around the world. Let’s remember to pray for our farmers who put food on our tables.
Prayer for an end to drought:
Great Spirit, we pray for an end to the drought, and the arrival of rain to soothe and replenish the dry and parched land.
We pray for wet weather to drench the earth, to bring new life to seeds, and to ensure a good harvest.
We are saddened by the cracking of the ground, the spread of destructive wildfires, and the resulting deaths of crops and wild animals.
We pray for patience to endure this drought siege as we wait for rain to refresh and renew our lives and livelihoods.
We are so grateful for the life-saving capacities of rain, and pray that we never take water for granted.
