We hope you will find the monthly prayer, in addition to the readings and meditations, helpful and comforting.
PRAYER FOR SEPTEMBER
(adapted from the Harvest Collect of Thanksgiving)
Almighty Father, Lord of the harvest, as the year moves forward to the time of ‘mists and mellow fruitfulness’ we give thanks for the fruits of the earth, for your provision of the harvest, for bread, the work of human hands given for our own well-being, and for the needs of those in need.
We pray that our surpluses may be used to feed those in the world suffering at this time from hunger.
In the name of Jesus our Saviour, who fed the hungry on the mountain, we pray. Amen.

A Celtic Caim or Circle Prayer (for August)
Circle me, Lord,
keep love within, keep hate out,
keep joy within, keep fear out,
keep peace within, keep harm and worry out,
keep light within, keep darkness out.
May you stand in the circle with me, today and always.
