Heavenly Father, we know that work is a good thing. Even before the fall of humankind in the garden, Adam was given noble work to do. We instinctively desire to contribute value to the world around us. So today we pray for those working in the cocoa industry in Ghana and Ivory Coast as they seek what they feel is a fair price for their produce. With these two nations the largest producers of cocoa in the world, we know this is a significant issue not only for the farmers, but for all stakeholders in the cocoa value chain. We pray that as hundreds of farmers and other stakeholders meet together this week that they will be able to debate this issue with dignity, wisdom, civility and respect. May all parties involved come to reasonable agreements that will benefit everyone and be fair for farmers. May the decisions be carefully and peacefully implemented and lead to further success in the industry. We pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
