PRAYER FOR ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE
Loving God, we praise Your name with all you have created.
You are present in the whole universe, and in the smallest of creatures.
We acknowledge the responsibilities you have placed upon us
as loving stewards of Your creation. We know we are called to live in a communion of love and justice
with all the creatures of the Earth, with the forests, seas and land.
We are called to purify and protect the air we breathe, the water we drink.
May the Holy Spirit inspire us all
to embrace the changes needed to heal our Common Home, the Earth.
Give courage and wisdom to political leaders to fulfil their promises
and take decisive action to care for the Earth and bring true justice and equality to the poorest and most vulnerable. Guide us to commit our and all nations to the care of our Common Home.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ Your Son…AMEN!
You are the wisdom that guides us,
You, are the love that unites us
You are the divine energy that empowers us.
Come, lead us into all Truth liberating us
to become Your Church, the sacrament of God’s Loving for our 21st Century world.
Come speak to your Church through the voices of the silenced, the hurting, the wounded.
Come so that we may listen with love to unfamiliar voices for through them You speak
healing and hope to the People of God, renewing and reforming us in love.
Teach us the way we must go, what we must change
Show us new ways to be Your Church
and make this Journey of Synod Your own!
All this we ask of You,
who are at work in every place, person and time,
in the communion of the Father and the Son, forever and ever. Amen.
