God said: “See, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food." Genesis 1:29

And with that, God also gave us a beautiful bouquet of farmers' hands.

Today in Colombia, several agricultural sectors are being affected by the Free Trade Agreements, where national production is facing a crisis. Our prayer is an invitation to consume national products, products of the Colombian countryside. An invitation to dignify the hard and tireless work of those farmers hands.


This is part of CPT Colombia's new series #OracionesCampesinas or Prayers for Farmers.
