A prayer for Five Loaves Farm

Dear God,
We humbly come before you in recognition of the work you are doing in this community. We ask that you continue to make your presence obvious to us as we often blindly feel for your guidance.

We shout in gratitude for the blessings you have granted to Five Loaves Farm. Thank you for the literal connection to your creation that this garden provides. Your Providence through the earth is incredible. Thank you for the people who have put so much effort into this garden. Continue to bring forth volunteers, waterers, weeders, and harvesters to take on this task. Carve out the time for these people to complete the work in a way that glorifies you. Help these people and this church to connect to the least, the last, and the lost in this community through the sharing of food. Open doors and opportunities for those connections to take place. Thank you for the award and grant that the Farm received this winter – what an incredible blessing. Help us to effectively and thoroughly use these funds to multiply this harvest. Thank you for the work of the CRC Office of Social Justice and A Rocha USA – bless these organizations as they work for your Kingdom.

Finally, bless the earth in this place, keep away disease, and keep the predators at bay, provide the sun, the moisture, and the nutrients for Five Loaves Farm to bear fruit. Multiply this harvest. Here are your five loaves Lord – our baskets are ready, we long to distribute what you provide.

This is our prayer, hear it Oh Lord,
