Prayer for the Environment (prepared by Eleanor)  

Dear Lord, this is your world. You are the world and we have made you sick. The fires are your raging temperatures. The worsening hurricanes your ravaging cough. The floods your increasing tears. The mudslides and diminishing ice caps strong symptoms of your deteriorating condition. We have not been kind and supportive to you and yet you are still there holding us up and caring for us. Dear God, many of us realize this is happening. Unfortunately, there are those who are blind to our need for immediate, fast action. They have too much control of the process as well as the narrative. Please guide and help us to make the right decisions and to take peaceful, productive action making restitution before it is too late. Let us not be afraid to take on this continuous challenge. It is true Lord; the big corporations and governments need to step up.

We must also remember and use the power of one and persevere so that many “ones” become a powerful voice and action.   We must always remember that water is our life blood and it is being taken away both within the continents of the world as well as the vast oceans. We will soon reach the point of no return. Micro plastics are becoming a part of every species including humans. Please help and support all those who are preforming committed research into practical care of the health and wellbeing of your world. May we realize and spread the news that prevention is the best possible outcome. May we be steadfast; practical and passionate yet kind and gentle on our journey to earth saving goals. Please help us to have the courage to lead by example.

In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen
