You care for the whole country, make it rich and fruitful. You fill the streams and rivers with water to grow corn in abundance.
Together with the Stiftung Schleife (https://www.bauernkonferenz.ch/vernetzen/) and many others, we have the vision to see God as the center of our farms with the associated land.
It is our concern for our wonderful country to pray for the peasantry in our region. For a long time we have been doing this for the Weggis farmers. We appreciate the intact landscape, natural and healthy food and feel that farmers are making an important contribution and are doing a great job. But we also see the critical area of agricultural policy and the challenges the peasantry is facing every day.
At several Christian "peasant conferences" in Winterthur and in various places in central Switzerland (Stans, Muri, Schüpfheim), we have heard extraordinary reports (testimonies) from peasant families about how God worked after prayer groups had formed. For example, Hallau was spared the vinegar fly nationwide in 2016 after winegrowers came together for a common prayer. This year we learned that the frost caused far less damage, where people placed their cultures under the protection of God, praying and blessing, etc. (taken from the peasants' newsletter).
It also encouraged us to pray regularly for the peasants. We pray for personal needs, needs and situations in which someone is present. You are very welcome to share this with us. Of course we treat everything confidentially and there is no other obligation attached.
But we would be very happy if you would like to attend one of our prayer meetings personally. These are informal meetings where we exchange topics and pray about topical issues. You are cordially invited.
The common peasant prayer takes place on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 19.30.
