Give thanks to the Lord for he is good! His faithful love endures forever!

Ps 136:1 NLT

Gracious God of provision, we praise You for your love and your goodness to us; all that is good comes from You.  We thank You for life and breath, for health, for food, for nature, for our families, our friends, our clothes, our homes, our work, our schools and we reflect with grateful hearts on the many gifts and blessings in our lives….

At this harvest time, we thank You for the food on our tables and for all involved in the production and distribution of food.

We thank You for sun and rain and the climate that allows different crops and vegetation to flourish in our world.

We thank You for the technology that enables food to be grown and distributed more efficiently and effectively.

Gracious God of provision, we pray for those who do not have enough food to eat, or clothes to wear, or a roof over their head; for those struggling with financial issues or health concerns; for those experiencing a failed harvest and climate change; for areas of unrest and devastation…..

We ask your blessing on organisations that seek to relieve suffering.  Help us to give as we are able, of our prayers, our resources and our time, that others may have help in their need. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
