Prayer of Gratitude
God of the harvest and of all seasons, we bring our gratitude and praise for rich soil, abundant
rainfall, and life-giving energy from the sun. For the plenty that surrounds us, we give thanks.
Remembering all who have toiled to produce our food and transport it, we rejoice. May these
moments of gratitude spill over in generous spirits and unselfish acts of sharing. Amen.
