Our Harvest Prayer
Lord, we remember the people of Angola, Myanmar
and some of the poorest communities in the world
whom we are supporting through our Harvest Appeal.
We pray for the work of Christian Aid in Angola, helping
to protect the land and water of the pastoralists who
are threatened by wealthy landowners. We pray that
with our help, more families may be able to graze their
cattle in peace and have a regular supply of nutritious
milk for their children.
We pray for the work of the Mothers’ Union
in Myanmar. We pray for the Mothers’ Union
members as they cook and share out rice to needy
families and teach communities how to improve their
soil and grow better crops.
May we gladly share what we have with those who
are short of food so that they, with us, may share
the joys of harvest.
