A Prayer for the Earth

A Prayer for the Earth
God our Creator,
maker and shaper of all that is,
seen and unseen;

You are present in the breadth and depth of the whole of creation,
and in the processes that make life possible.
Yet, we are distracted by the gods of the marketplace.
Our lives have become fractured and fragmented.
In our brokenness we disturb the Earth’s capacity to hold us.

Call us back from the brink.
Help us to choose love and not fear,
to change ourselves and not the planet,
to act justly for the sake of the
vulnerable, and to make a difference today for the life tomorrow.
We make this our prayer in your name,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
