Prayer for the earth
As we walk with our halting and faltering steps
seeking to live faithfully into Your world,
Help us bind closer into our-self all the
goodness that Your creation offers us.
May our feet tread lightly upon our shared home;
May our eyes see more clearly the gifts of Your world.
May we appreciate the uniqueness and
respect the integrity of of each living species.
May we grow in a balanced grace between
living in solitude, and coming together as Your people.
May distance from one another show us only how
inter-connected we are as children in the garden of life.
May those who experience loneliness, distress,
suffering at this time be knitted closer into
the restful embrace of Your loving Spirit.
May Your Peace be the voice of our togetherness.
Thank You for our lives and the full-some earth
You have given us to be our home. Thank You
for one another, for plants, animals, water, air, fire:
may we act wisely in taking care of our home and one another.
