A Prayer For the Soil

Giver of life, we give you thanks that in the richness of the soil, nature awakens your call to spring
We praise you for the smell of freshly tilled earth, the beauty of a cleanly cut furrow, and a well-plowed field.
We ask that you help us to be good stewards of the land.
In the name of the one who gives us new life, Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen,
-- from Rogation Prayers, "Worship From the Ground Up," Center For Theology and the Land
