Join other born-again farmers today in praying for each other and our farms. We are all dependent upon the Lord, but as farmers it is especially evident. We need Him to bring rain in its season, cause our seeds to sprout, protect our crops from disease, bring customers for our products, keep our animals safe from predators, and give us strength to work. But what a good place to be! There is no better place to put our trust.
If you haven’t already posted your prayer request you can still do so in the comments of the previous post. But regardless you can still pray. My recommendation is that you fast one meal and take that time to pray through the comments of the previous post.
I need prayer. I need to pray more and need the prayers of others. Thank you all for participating in joining with us. What a privilege to be a part of the Family of God with all of you!
“Fight the good fight of faith.” 1 Timothy 6:12
My Christian walk is not just about going about my physical and religious duties. It is about viewing every day as a series of spiritual battles I must fight for the Kingdom of Christ. Today I have many ‘everyday’ tasks to do around the farm. Though on the surface they may seem mundane, they actually have spiritually significance, and I must view even farm chores as a battleground where I have to fight for the supremacy of Jesus Christ. If I do not fight, evil prevails, for the enemy is always looking to gain ground. Lord, keep my mind alert, watchful, and stayed on Christ.
I don’t typically advertise on this site, but I want to support a new line of clothing that has been started by a Christian family in Alabama. Known as ‘Mule Ware’, their clothing line seeks to counter the laziness and selfishness that is promoted by many modern clothing lines. They set up at the farmer’s market we sell at a few months ago and I bought a shirt similar to the one pictured above. It is now one of my favorite shirts! Here is more info from their website where I would encourage you to go order some of their products:
Mule Ware “America it’s time to go back to work” Mules are a symbol of the resolute will of the American people. Mules have earned a reputation of being great burden carriers and relentless workers, much like the founders of our nation. At one time, the father of this great nation, George Washington, owned 40 mules, who called Mount Vernon their home. Mules not only have served in civilian service, but also in the United States Army. Their sheer strength and loyalty to a task have made a formidable team when united with the best warriors in the world. In addition, mules have joined our special forces in the Middle East to continue to protect our country from terrorists. Just as the mule has answered the call to go back to work, we Americans should do the same by going back to our roots, literally. This is not the time to waver in our work ethic or patriotism to this nation. We sincerely hope you will wear Mule Ware as a symbol of American rugged individualism and determination.
