It's always been important to me that I don't ask God for things. Not that the Christian faith necessarily teaches that asking favors from God is wrong, I just feel I really shouldn't be selfish in my prayers, otherwise I'm a greedy little child saying, "Gimme!". The Apostle Paul put it in this perspective. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God" (Philippians 4:6). Notice the phrase "with thanksgiving" tucked in there with "present your requests to God."
So today I acknowledge that my harvest doesn't deserve a blessing nearly so much as God who gave it and I offer a simple prayer of thanks for the food I am about to receive, "Blessed are you, Lord my God, who has caused bread to come forth out of the earth."
“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?" (Job 12:7-9)
