A Collect to Reap the Lord’s Harvest

Lord of the harvest, by whose hand the tiniest seed grows great and fruitful, give us eyes to see the fields ready for harvest, and make us ready and willing to reap and pluck the fruit you have made ripe, that the world would receive the good things you have grown and we might enjoy the richness of virtue and love on the earth, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. ‘He said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”‘ – Luke 10:2
