PRAYER FOR THE LAND – from Deuteronomy

For the Lord your God

is bringing you into a good land

a land with brooks, streams, and deep springs

gushing out into the valleys and hills

a land with wheat and barley

vines and fig trees

pomegranates, olive oil and honey

a land where bread will not be scarce

and you will lack nothing

a land where the rocks are iron

and you can dig copper out of the hills

When you have eaten and are satisfied

praise the Lord your God

for the good land he has given you

Be careful

that you do not forget the Lord your God

failing to observe his commands

(Deut 8:7-11 NIV)
