Imagine the power of thousands of voices all praying for the same thing at the same moment! We have that opportunity this weekend. Please join us as we have a moment of prayer for the earth at noon on February 14. This is a simple step we can all take to stand for something so important. God gave us this beautiful gift, it is our duty to honor and protect it. Following is a prayer that I encourage you to say.
We Hold the Earth
We hold brothers and sisters who suffer from storms and droughts intensified by climate change.
We hold all species that suffer.
We hold world leaders delegated to make decisions for life.
We pray that the web of life may be mended through courageous actions to limit carbon emissions.
We pray for right actions for adaptation and mitigation to help our already suffering earth community.
We pray that love and wisdom might inspire my actions and our actions as communities. . . so that we may, with integrity, look into the eyes of brothers and sisters and all beings and truthfully say, we are doing our part to care for them and the future of the children.
May love transform us and our world with new steps toward life.
