A Harvest Prayer

October 8, 2015
Emmetsburg News

To the Editor:

We hope for a great harvest. It's good for all of us! We are grateful to our farm economy, but we are also aware of the risks and we pray for their safety. The Episcopal Book of Common Prayer offers a prayer that suits us for Harvest:

"Almighty God, be present with your people where they work; make those who carry on the industries of farming and commerce of this land responsive to your will; and give to us all a pride in what we do, and a just return for our labor through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever." We all say Amen to that dear Lord, keep them safe.
