This funeral prayer card is perfect for a loved one who had a farm and worked with animals, who liked the quiet and country ways of life. The front side of the card features a stunning photograph of a prairie grass field with grazing cows in the distance, while on the back we can read the “Farmers Prayer”, a little funny prayer that farmers used to pray at night before going to sleep:
Farmers prayer for funeral is a prayer that is said by a farmer before they start their farm work. This is a traditional prayer that is used by farmers around the world and in different cultures.
This prayer is said to ask God to bless the land and make it fertile, so that it can produce crops and feed people. It also asks God to protect their farms from pests and other dangers like floods, earthquakes or droughts. Farmers pray for the safety of all the animals on their farms too, especially those who are about to be slaughtered for meat consumption.
A farmer prays for his crops to grow well so that he can sell them off at a good price when harvest time comes around again next year as well as make enough profit from selling them off too!
Many people have often wondered why farmers say this prayer before starting their day’s work in the fields? Well there are many reasons why they do this actually!

Farmers Prayer For Funeral
Our Father who art in heaven,
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever. Amen
Hallowed be thy Name.
The use of this hymn, “Hallowed Be Thy Name,” as an Old Farmer’s Prayer has been traced back as far as 1832.
The Old Farmer’s Prayer is a prayer of gratitude for one’s blessings bestowed by God and for the precious gift of life. It was written by Reverend William Makepeace Thackeray in 1845 and published in his book Sketches and Travels in London and Paris: A Journey From Cornhill to Grand Cairo via Vienna, Venice, Florence & Rome (1847).
Thy kingdom come.
This prayer is one that comes from a heart that has a relationship with God. This is the kind of prayer that every believer should pray and will be praying as long as they have their eyes set on Jesus Christ. The person who prays this type of prayer has been transformed by the grace and mercy of God and is full of adoration and praise for him, especially when he sees his goodness in the midst of difficulties or during times when everything seems to be going wrong. This person also gives thanks for all things because he knows God is good even when things look dark on our side, but we only see it through His grace and mercy which cover us all times! A farmer who cares about his harvest will always pray for rain so as not to lose any crop; likewise, you too should always pray for your harvest (which are souls) at all times so that they may come closer to you so they can be saved too!
Thy will be done,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and glory forever and ever. Amen!
On earth as it is in heaven.
“On earth as it is in heaven.” What does this mean? It means that God’s will be done on earth just as it is in heaven. God’s will for you, for me, and for every person who has ever lived or will ever live is that we would be saved from sin and live an abundant life through Jesus Christ. He wants us to be healed of our sicknesses, physical and spiritual; he wants us to have victory over all the temptations of this world so we can walk in righteousness and holiness; he wants us to come into a closer relationship with him than any other human being could possibly enjoy here on this earth.
Give us this day our daily bread.
We pray for the strength to live simply, with gratitude for what we have.
We pray that we may not lose sight of what is important in life. That there would be no greed or avarice in us, but instead a desire for what is truly meaningful and lasting.
We ask that we may be satisfied with the simple pleasures of life, rather than seeking only material wealth or fame.
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses,
The phrase “as we forgive those who trespass against us” becomes a key element of the prayer. The farmer’s forgiveness of others is a reflection of his own need for forgiveness, and it’s the only way he can repay his debt to them while they are still alive.
When you’re finished saying your own version of this prayer, it’s time to think about what you’ve learned through this experience. You may be able to identify areas where you have been unforgiving or unkind toward others; perhaps even toward yourself. Take some time alone with God and ask Him what forgiveness means in relation to those areas in your life (e.g., forgiving yourself for past mistakes). Then take action! Keep practicing the farmer’s prayer until it becomes part of who you are as a person: someone who forgives readily and easily welcomes others back into their lives after they’ve fallen short—like Jesus did on Easter Sunday morning when He rose from His tomb after having died on Good Friday afternoon just hours earlier.
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
As we forgive those who trespass against us,
and as we are forgiven by others,
so too may the Lord forgive us.
In this prayer, forgiveness is not only something we do for ourselves, but also an act of kindness that allows others to live with peace of mind. Forgiveness may be difficult at times, but it is a gift you can give yourself and your loved ones—so they know they are truly forgiven by God.
And lead us not into temptation,
Prayer to help with temptation:
May the Lord lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil (Matthew 6:13).
We are not able to resist temptation without God’s help. The Bible says that we cannot be tempted beyond what we can bear (1 Corinthians 10:13). When we find ourselves in a situation where our flesh is being tested, it is important to pray for God’s guidance and protection.
But deliver us from evil.
The last line of this prayer is, “But deliver us from evil.” This is a request to God, who has the power to save us from the evil that threatens our lives and the lives of our children. It’s an appeal for salvation.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
This prayer can be used by any farmer with great effect. You can give it to your child or grandchild and they will learn how to pray. It is a good idea to take this prayer with you when you go on vacation, so that when people ask what your name is and where you are from, you will have an answer for them. It is also good for use in everyday life situations such as being stuck behind an elderly person at the grocery store who won’t move out of the way or paying for things at the checkout counter where all of the cashiers are too busy texting their boyfriends/girlfriends or talking about their hair and nail appointments that weekend instead of helping customers like yourself out.
the old farmers prayer
A NEW Pastor was attending a men’s breakfast in a rural area.
She asked one of the impressive older farmers in attendance to say grace that morning.
After all, were seated, the older farmer began:
“Lord, I hate buttermilk.”
The Pastor opened one eye and wondered to herself where this was going.
Then the farmer loudly proclaimed, “Lord, I hate lard.”
Now the Pastor was worried.
However without missing a beat, the farmer prayed on,
“And Lord, you know I don’t care much for raw white flour.”
Just as the Pastor was ready to stand and stop everything, the farmer continued,
“But Lord, when You mix ‘em all together and bake ‘em up, I do love fresh biscuits.
So Lord, when things come up we don’t like, when life gets hard, when we just don’t understand what You are sayin’ to us, we just need to relax and wait ‘till you’re done mixin’, and probably Lord, it will be somethin’ even better than biscuits.
a farmers prayer
As I rise with the dawn, I drink in the morning. I taste the goodness of your creation and smell the crispness of new beginnings. I sense you beside me, my good shepherd watching over me as I care for the farm. I whistle a tune of praise as I go about my work. I feel blessed to walk in the long lived rhythms of sowing, feeding and reaping. Fill me anew today Lord with your Spirit. Give me strength and health when I feel tired or weary. I release my anxious thoughts to you, Knowing that you hear my prayer. Please bless my farm, my home, my family. Please bless the work of my hands. Please remind me each morning To give thanks to you anew, my Lord and Saviour. Amen.
