FMU Announces Day Of Prayer For Farmers

Submitted by Tina Carlin, FWU Executive Director

In light of the ongoing and worsening financial crisis facing farmers, ranchers, and fishermen, Farm Women United (FWU), advocates for a morally just food system that reflects God's sovereignty over all of creation, has announced April 19, 2020, as a "National Day of Prayer for Farmers, Ranchers, and Fishermen." FWU is calling on faith communities, church congregations, religious associations, and individuals who are concerned about the humanitarian crisis afflicting rural America, to join together in prayer asking for God's intervention for relief of the socioeconomic suffering being endured by the families who produce America's food.

Over the past several years, these dedicated food producers have fallen deeper into financial hardship and emotional despair, with, seemingly, very little outside understanding or support. FWU is seeking prayer support, from all faiths, for farmers, ranchers, and fishermen in these difficult times, while just, long-term remedies are being sought.

Please pray for physical, mental, and emotional strength, as well as economic justice, with fair prices, for America's beleaguered farmers, ranchers, and fishermen, who can no longer bear up under the stresses alone. They desperately need support, encouragement, advocacy, and, most urgently, prayers, as many have lost hope and are suffering despair, feeling abandoned and misunderstood.

FWU has prepared a packet of information, available upon request, to assist with this "National Day of Prayer for Farmers, Ranchers, and Fishermen."To receive this packet, please contact Farm Women United at (570) 267-7405, or email farmwomenunited@gmail.com, or www.farmwomenunited.org/national-day-of-prayer.
