Every year we see the changing of the seasons, but there is something about the season of autumn that really makes us reflect on transitions and changing times. Maybe it’s brilliant colors of the leaves.
Maybe it’s the autumn chill in the air and the shortening of days.
Or perhaps it’s the shift from the carefree rhythms of the summer to the more rigid routines that mark the beginning of school year and busier times at work.

Simple Autumn Prayers
The autumn months bring about thoughts of harvest moon nights and misty mornings. The landscape suddenly becomes painted in yellow and red leaves.
During this time, we are reminded that God is the God of all seasons.
While the things around us continually change, the God of Life never does.
God's love endures forever.
Short Autumn Prayer for Transitions in Life
We all go through a transformation process in life, and since the autumn time is one of great transitions in nature around us.
Focusing your prayers on the transitions you are currently experiencing, or those that others around you are going through can be a great place to start while praying through this season.
Always be reminded that the God of Autumn remains constant through every change of seasons.
He will continually breath the breath of life into your through your empty seasons.
Dear Lord, I'm thankful for the changes in my life. I'm thankful for the new and different things I experience.
I know Dear God, this is our lives changing all around us, and thank you that we are allowed to have these experiences.
May I become more aware of the ways that it changes me and what impact it has on my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Praying for Changing Seasons
While we see the seasons change quarterly, there is something about autumn that really causes us to reflect on changes. Perhaps its because of the dramatic changes we see as the leaves change.
Praying for and during changing seasons not only allows us to receive divine direction and guidance but also helps our hearts to remain steady during the transition.
This autumn prayer encourages you to continue to see God in the midst of the changes.
O God of Creation, thank you for the changing seasons.
You are the God of the seasons, and I praise you that you know how to give each of us what we need when we need it. Thank you for being my God, leading me in ways that only you can.
I ask that as I go through these changing seasons that you would continue to guide me and that you would continue to remind me that I can find peace in you even in the midst of the changes.
Thank you that you are a God of change, and you always lead us to better and deeper connection in you. In Jesus' name, Amen
Autumn Prayer for Teachers
School starts in the fall and thus our teachers are switching back into a mode of caring for many children at a time.
Setting your prayers on the hearts and minds of the teachers during this season is another way to pray outside of your own needs, and to really make a difference.
These autumn prayers for teachers can be for patience, for provision, for peace, and for protection.
Heavenly Father, I pray for the teachers starting school again in ________ this fall.
May they be filled with ever-increasing patience, wisdom and care for the children in consideration. May they be provisioned with all they need for this school year and beyond.
And may their hearts be filled with peace and protection at all times. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
Autumn Prayers for Harvest
Fall is all about the harvest. We look forward to the harvest in the autumn and expect it to be bountiful.
The Lord does give us His best in abundance. And it is not just a matter of having food at home; we are called to work God’s goodwill for our brothers and sisters, whether the project is physical or spiritual, local or global.
So praying for the harvest can take several different forms. It can be the literal harvest and those who work in agriculture.
Praying for their strength and for a bountiful harvest as well as weather patterns that tend to disrupt the blessings of harvest are one way to focus your intention.
Creator God, You are the God of the Harvest! As the golden sun casts its warm embrace upon the earth, and the fields yield their bounty, we bow our heads in humble gratitude.
We thank you for this bountiful fall harvest season, for the fruits of the land that grace our tables and nourish our bodies.
In this season of abundance, may we remember those less fortunate and share our blessings with open hearts. Let us cultivate a spirit of generosity, kindness, and compassion as we gather the harvest of our fields and our souls.
As the leaves golden leaves fall and the days grow shorter, remind us of the fleeting nature of life. Help us cherish each moment, for like the autumn leaves, our days too shall pass.
Bless the hands that toil in the fields, the farmers and laborers who bring forth this harvest. May their efforts be rewarded with prosperity and fulfillment.
In your name, we offer our thanks for the gifts of the earth, and we pray for a season of peace, abundance, and gratitude. Amen.
Pray Through the Autumn Season
As the falling leaves turn from green to a deep red, we all have an opportunity for reflection.
This is my favorite time of year. It's when I feel most thankful and content with myself.
Autumn reminds me that life comes in cycles and not everything will always be perfect- but even if something bad happens, there are still blessings around every corner. We can't wait until next autumn so we can pray again!
Wherever you find yourself during the autumn season, whether it is a place of praise and blessings, or in the midst of uncertainty with the changes around you, prayer is a great way to steady yourself.
When we pray, we connect to God and receive his peace, wisdom, and divine rest.
I pray that you too will find peace and contentment this season of surrender as we experience the beauty of God's creation.
Always remember, that just like the barren fields of fall and winter are revived in the spring, the season you are experiencing will also spring to life in the next season.
May His love be your shelter from any storm, may He bless you with a sense of inner calm in these uncertain times, and may all your days bring joy to those around you! Amen.
