A prayer for Rogation tide
Remember, Lord, your mercy and loving kindness towards us.
Bless this good earth and make it fruitful.
Bless our labour and give us all the things needed for our daily lives.
Bless the homes of our parish and all who live within them.
Bless our common life and our care for our neighbour.
Hear us good Lord. Amen
