Prayer is our most powerful weapon against every assault that comes at us. Let’s face it: it was weapons of warfare that were “reformulated” for use in agriculture, and with names like Round Up, Ambush, Assail and Sniper, the war has just shifted from the jungles of Vietnam to crop fields all over the world. The underlying axiom is that soil is a non-living thing that can be used and used up, manipulated, and poisoned with no consequences. While there is some truth to that – the soil itself, the grains of rock and minerals are indeed non-living, the soil supports a rich panoply of life that coexists, a minute community of organisms that all function to support plants in every possible way, from earthworms that aerate the soil for roots and create humus from bio-waste to microbes that assist roots in water absorption. They are vital.
The practices of monoculture farming (that is, planting only one crop in an area and considering any other plant an intruder in that space), chemical use to kill insects and weeds in the planted area, and Genetically Meddling Obscenely with seeds (also known as genetically modified organisms or GMOs) all consequently cause the eradication of soil life. Land becomes fallow, as if raped and left for dead, and we suffer because year after year we have more desserts and less lively soil to grow healthy food in.
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal. Satan’s hand in this soil destruction is evident. His trademarks of greed, control, dishonesty and distortion or withholding of information that we, the victims of these war crimes are indeed entitled to, are clear evidence of his influence over the people and their corporations who perpetrate these crimes. Therefore, I call you to prayer, because Jesus said if two or more are on earth in agreement about anything we ask for, it will be done for us by His Father (Matthew 18:19).
Please share this with every praying person you know. I will post a French translation, please feel free to translate it into your native tongue as well as we get this prayer out. More prayers to follow. Thank you for joining and agreeing in prayer with me for the reclaiming and healing of our soil.
Prayer for Our Soil
Father God, you said in Genesis 2:7 that you formed us out of the soil, and so we pray
today for healing for our mother, the soil. We pray to return she that supports all life on earth back to the perfect state you created her to be in. You filled her with life and abundance, with life forms that are minuscule but no less important than other beings, each with a vital role you assigned in your infinite, unmatched wisdom.
Lord, she is under attack by the wicked and greedy members of our human family. We forgive the assailants in Jesus name and harbor no resentment against them. Nonetheless, we rebuke their evil plans that are clearly of Satan who comes to steal, kill and destroy our soil.
We now reclaim the soil all over this world you created and the abundance Christ died for us to have, even through the gifts of abundant, healthy soil and the diverse, nutrient-rich plants that flourish in her.
No weapon formed against her shall prosper.
In Jesus Name We Pray
