Prayer for May - Rogation

I'm rather late in posting the May parish prayer, but here it is at last!

Rogation Sunday, the 29th May this year, and the 3 days following, are traditionally a time to ask God’s blessing on our fields and crops and livestock. So for May let us use the old BCP Rogation collect in modern language.

Almighty God, Lord of heaven and earth,
in whom we live, and move, and have our being;
who causes the sun to rise on the evil and on the good,
and sends rain to fall on both the just and the unjust;
We ask you to favour your faithful people,
and to bless us with a fruitful season;
that with hearts filled with your goodness,
we may always give thanks unto you;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

The Book of Common Prayer, adapted
