Thank you God for farmers.
Help us to recognize the importance of those
who participate in your creative work
by growing and raising food.
We pray today in particular for farm families
who suffer from crises in the agricultural industry.
Help us to walk with those who must sell their products
for less than the cost of production.
Help us to walk with those who face uncertainty
because of disease and government restrictions.
Help us to walk with those who are burnt out
because they must work on and off the farm.
Help us walk with those who grapple with family responsibilities
and difficult business decisions at the same time.
Help us to walk with those who have lost
or fear the loss of their family farm.
Help us to walk with those who work from dawn to dusk
and into darkness and yet cannot make ends meet.
God, help us to create a society where there is justice for farmers.
