Harvest Prayer(the words of this prayer are featured in the video above)
Father, as we celebrate this season of thanksgiving
We give thanks for the blessings of food, provision and nourishment.
Please grow in us a harvest for the world.
Come sow a seed of hope within our souls Lord, that we might yield goodness, patience and kindness in abundance.
Sow a seed of peace in our lives Lord, that we might bear the fruits of forgiveness, compassion and righteousness.
Come sow a seed of love in our hearts Lord, that others would reap the blessings of family, friendship and community.
May each seed of hope, peace and love grow within us into a harvest that can be feasted on by all.
(Prayer by Julie Palmer © 2018 www.prayerscapes.com)
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.

King David's prayer of thanks (Psalm 138)
Short Thanksgiving Prayer
Lord, thank you for walking with us through the seasons of our lives.
For the winter, when we are held safe in your arms through the darkness.
For the hope of spring, as we are filled with new promise and life.
For summer time, full of warmth and colour
And for autumn days as leaves fall to seed new growth.
You are always with us.
