Prayer for September 2018

Evenings are drawing in; important exam results have been received and school holidays are coming to a close. These are some signs that we are witnessing the passing of summer.

We must not view this as forthcoming doom and gloom, but as a reminder that we should take time to look around us at the wonder of autumn .. morning dew on the grass, glorious sunsets, turning leaves and the never-failing Harvest signs .. golden crops, laden fruit trees and feverish farming activity, all reminders of God’s Almighty hand, providing all our needs, with the help of mother nature.

Dear Father, we all lead busy 21st century lives and often we need your help to slow down and take time to look around us, to witness all that you provide.

We thank you for providing for all our daily food. Without you, how would our seeds bring forth abundant harvests to feed our bodily needs.

Help us to consider the needs of others. We know that there is enough provision to feed 9 billion people. We ask your help to tackle the problem of still having food shortages within our 7.3 billion world population.

Grant us wisdom, strength and resolve, as your good earth rests through this coming winter, to do all in our power to make life on Earth a much better place than it is today, for all.

This we ask in the name of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
