Farmers Gather in Prayer for the Global Agriculture Day of Prayer from Charisma News
Thousands of farmers will gather in Kentucky Friday for the Global Agriculture Day of Prayer, a way to honor God and give thanks for their harvest.
More than 1 million farmers, along with other people in the agriculture industry, are taking part in the prayer gathering, as well as several special guests including Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Graham will address viewers by video and explain how his ministry, Samaritan’s Purse, is assisting farmers affected by last year’s tornado.
Don and Jodie Lamb of Lamb Farms in Lebanon, Indiana, are among the many guest speakers who will be praying at the event on Feb. 18.
During a recent interview with CBN News, the Lambs pointed out that they live by the motto of growing food, family and faith.
Don explained why it’s so important for people to be a part of the Global Agriculture Day of Prayer.
“Agriculture and the gospel have always had a really great link,” he said. “There’s so much crossover between the harvest and taking care of the fields with the gospel message. It’s very natural for farmers to be connected to God and through that, connected to prayer.”
He also emphasized the likeness between his faith and being a successful farmer.
