TEST TIDBITS: A PRAYER FOR THE BEGINNING OF 2020
The following is a prayer circulated a number of years ago by the Interfaith Power and Light umbrella organization for Earth Day activities (with a few minor changes). It is also very appropriate as we begin another new year. May we all double our effort to become even better Earth Stewards.
WE HOLD THE EARTH! (WE ALL HOLD THE EARTH IN OUR HANDS!)
*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 our actions toward creation care as individuals, organizations, communities and governments.
*We pray that we may, with integrity, look into the eyes of our brothers and sisters and all living beings and truthfully say—we are doing our part to care for them right now and for coming generations.
*MAY LOVE TRANSFORM US AND OUR WORLD WITH NEW STEPS TOWARD A NEW UNDERSTANDING OF CREATION CARE
