BLESSING FOR THE INNAGUARATION OF THE CHAMA VALLEY FARMERS MARKET, MAY 21, 2021

God of all nations, Creator of the universe, give us the gifts of love, joy, peace and patience. As we begin this new endeavor of the Chama Valley Farmers Market, bless it and fill our hearts with a spirit of goodwill and care, that all of us—the organizers, vendors and shoppers—may be instruments of peace in our troubled world.

Bless the work of our hands and grant success in all that we do. Keep our animals safe and send sufficient rain to our pasturelands, just not on Friday afternoons, please!

Bless all the people of the Chama Valley with good health and grant healing to the sick and comfort to the dying.

We place our trust in you, Lord our God, for ever and ever. AMEN.
