Most gracious God, by whose knowledge the depths are
broken up and the clouds drop down the dew:
We yield thee hearty thanks and praise for the return of seedtime and harvest,
for the increase of the ground and the gathering in of its fruits,
and for all the other blessings of thy merciful providence bestowed upon this nation and people. And, we beseech thee, give us a just sense of these great mercies,
such as may appear in our lives by a humble, holy, and obedient walking before thee all our days;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with thee and the Holy Ghost be all glory and honor,
world without end. Amen.

Bible verse for Harvestime:-
Then he said to them, "The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore to the Lord of the harvest, that he may send out laborers into his harvest.
Luke 10:2, (NHEB)
Prayer of the Christian Farmer and Gardener
O God, Source and Giver of all things, Who does manifest Thy infinite majesty, power and goodness in all the earth, we give You honor and glory.
For the sun and the rain, for the manifold fruits of our fields, for the increase of our herds and flocks, we thank You. For the enrichment of our souls with divine grace, we are grateful.
Lord of the harvest, graciously accept us and the fruits of our toil, in union with Christ, Your Son, as atonement for our sins, for the growth of Your Church, for peace and charity in our homes.
