When we pray about Fair Trade, we do two things. Firstly, and most importantly, we bring all who are involved in trade – and the issues they face in making trade fair – before God. And secondly, we remind ourselves and our congregations of God’s desire for justice and invite reflections on the way that Fair Trade might help us to “do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with God.”
To help, CCOW has prepared a selection of prayer and worship materials.
- A collection of prayers and reflections, formal and informal, that we’ve written over the years
- Fair Trade Prayers from Asha Handicrafts includes prayer suggestions from one of India’s largest Fair Trade Organizations.
- A resource sheet with links to Fair Trade-related prayers from a wide variety of UK and worldwide agencies
