Creator God, for daily bread, and all who work
to bring your harvest home, we bring our thanks today.
Forgive our ingratitude, we who have so much,
yet waste what you have given.
For those whose harvest is poor, whose crops have withered,
water tainted, children starve, help those who bring relief
and bestow on us an unaccustomed generosity,
that all might share from your garden and all might sing your praise.
Creator God, provider of all we bring our thanks today. Amen.
Lord of the morning, of dawn chorus, rising sun, mist on water, day begun.
Lord of the noontime, sparkling water, of chattering voices, everyone.
Lord of the evening, of quiet breeze, setting sun, gentle waters, day that’s done, we
praise and thank you Lord. Amen.
For the promise of harvest contained within a seed,
we thank you.
For the oak tree within an acorn.
The bread within a grain.
The apple within a pip.
The mystery of nature, gift wrapped for us to sow,
we thank you.
Prayer from the Book of Common Prayer/Book of Divine Worship.
We give you thanks, most gracious God,
for the beauty of earth and sky and sea;
for the richness of mountains, plains, and rivers;
for the songs of birds and the loveliness of flowers.
We praise you for these good gifts,
and pray that we may safeguard them for our posterity.
Grant that we may continue to grow
in our grateful enjoyment of your abundant creation,
to the honour and glory of your Name,
now and for ever. Amen.
