Thank you for the smile
of the child:
eyes bright, belly full, licking
the last caked crumbs from his spoon.

Thank you for the pride
of the woman:
arms spread, palms stretched, heavy
with her first year's harvest.

Thank you for the joy
of the man:
coming home to his family's future
with fair payment for his crops.

Thank you for the love
of the neighbour:
seeing another's need, sharing
from the little she owns.

Thank you for the hope 
that we share:
determination that all should enjoy
the richness of your harvest.


More prayers on food and hunger

As we break bread together

Journey with us

Enough for everyone

Let us share our feast: a grace

All good things come from you

Grace for those who hunger

The Last Day
