I wrote this for FairTrade Fortnight some years ago. I tidied it up this week. If you are looking for something for a Church service on FairTrade. Feel free to use it.
Every man will sit under his own vine and under his own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid, for the LORD Almighty has spoken. (Micah 4:4)
Jesus thy Kingdom come/Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10)
God, in heaven no one lies drunk in the fields
God, in heaven everyone is satisfied with purpose
God, in heaven no one has more than anyone else
God, in heaven everyone’s child has enough
God, in heaven no one is treated as someone else’s
God, in heaven everyone has their own vine, to sit beneath.
So God we pray
As Jesus taught us to pray
“Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven”
So God help us to live on earth
Lives that answer Jesus prayer
May what we choose to buy in our weekly shop
Bring your Kingdom
Instead of the Devil’s Kingdom
In our shopping bags
As it is in heaven.
