Ah September!

the season of fruits and harvest is upon us;
the land prepares to store and sleep
and we prepare to give thanks for all God’s goodness to us.

Precious One,
as this new month begins, and we take stock
Guide us to see your bounty
in pumpkins and grains; in golden fields and rich tilled earth.

Guide us to see your bounty
in the people we meet; the conversations we have.
In darker evenings and misty mornings.

and remind us also – that seasons turn differently all around our world. As we say goodbye to summer, others are greeting spring; as we welcome harvest and crops gathering in, others are planting and wakening.

Holy One – we are all your children; north and south; east and west;
Hear our voices
Listen to our prayers
and, help us to hear and listen to you,
Amen

One thought on “Monday Prayer

  1. Thank you for this prayer. It is perfect for this time in Alberta, Canada as we prepare for the return of students to schools, harvest abounds and the geese fly overhead. Blessings
