A number of congregations will be lifting up the benefits of Fair Trade through prayer, worship, Sunday school classes, product sales and more. If your congregation has not already planned a way to celebrate, prayer is a perfect way to lift up the lives of millions of farmers and artisans all over the world. Consider using or adapting this prayer at church and at home:
Holy God, you create the world and call it good. On this World Fair Trade Day we turn our hearts to the millions of people around the world who make their living as creators - weavers and wood carvers, painters and potters, farmers and factory workers, harvesters and handcrafters. Inspire us to create a Fair Trade world, so that none go hungry or lack opportunity to develop their full potential. Forgive us the ways we consume thoughtlessly and forget you as Creator of All.
Grant us the will each day to choose wisely the products we consume, keeping your precious people and planet in mind with each decision we make. In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
