Prayer: God of the harvest

God of the harvest, we pray for all those who work the land, farming with crops and animals to provide food for our tables.
Their work is hard and demanding. They often feel under-valued and at the mercy of market forces that set prices, which make it difficult to survive on their land alone. They are weather dependent and sometimes have to watch their harvest being wiped out by wind, rain and flood.
Some are driven to despair and there are those who find that life is so intolerable that they take the drastic measure of ending it altogether.
Help us to be more aware of the problems faced by those who work to grow and rear our food and to offer them our compassionate understanding and support.
