Abbey United Reformed Church, Romsey

Prayer for September

We are reminded in our Harvest month to thank God for the verdant growth in the walkways and gardens.  It is good to be living in the countryside.  But last week from our bedroom window we witnessed a process which reminded us of God's creation of a different order.   Our local farmer and his family were caring for a sick cow which had just delivered a little black calf.   It was lying on the grass, not willing or able to give milk *. 

So, in our thoughts about God’s creation, we include the miracle of birth.

Bless to us loving God the planet in which we live and all creation.

For the plants that surround us: the trees, flowers, vegetables, field crops.

For Animals: cattle, sheep, horses, dogs and cats.

For people: farmers, those who work the land, those who fish in seas and rivers.

Thank you loving God….

…. for seeds, sun and rain which help the plants to grow

…. for the process of birth of people and animals.

…. for all your creation, we praise and thank you Lord.
