Fairtrade prayer

Fairtrade Fortnight prayer (From Traidcraft Church service)

May the cup that warms me on a cold day bring safety from the elements to the picker.

May the cup that keeps me going when I’m hard at work, also sustain the life of the grower,

May the cup that soothes my woes remind me of the plight of the poor,

May the cup that cheers me as I rest, bring fair reward to the tea worker,

May the cup of tea grown so far from my home, bind me to the hand that plucked leaves from the bush,

May the God who loves all his creation bless us both as we strive for fairness in His world. Amen


May God bless Patrick as he comes to Essex and Suffolk from his tea plantation in Kenya. Amen
