Praying for the Earth: Farms and Farmers

We pray for all who make their living from the land.  Help them to contend with the vagaries of the weather and with the variability of the economic climate.  Defend them from the threat of disease, and help them to protect the animals in their care.  We ask for your blessing on farm shops and farmers’ markets, and on all who buy and sell food locally.  (We pray in particular for ….)
