Prayer for Fine Weather.

Heavenly Father, you have created all things and we depend upon your loving goodness.

You have given us the earth to care for it and to provide our food.

We humbly ask you to give us fine weather so that our animals may have food;

that the crops maybe planted; and that those who work the land may have peace of mind.

In your goodness O Lord we thank you and in you we put our trust.  Amen.
