The Corn Harvest in Provence

Prayer Thought: Harvest Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for the beautiful gifts of creation and to acknowledge our dependency on this Earth and on God for his grace and guidance as we pray that we may be better stewards of his gifts.

Harvest is also a time to give thanks for the expertise and hard work of all those who produce and supply our food both locally and globally and to acknowledge our mutual dependency on one another.

The ‘giving’ part of ‘thanksgiving’ requires us to learn ‘stewardship’ and just how to share generously the gifts of the harvest.

Let us pray for God’s grace and guidance that we may honour him, all humankind and all creation through becoming better stewards of the harvest. And that’s how our lives start to yield the fruits of the harvest of the Spirit, which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (cf. Galatians 5: 22, 23). God bless.
