Prayerful consideration of this earth can bring us closer to God’s creation and is an integral part of how we care for the environment. Each Sunday of 30 Days of Action, we will suggest a prayer for God’s creation. During these 30 Days, as we work together to address climate change, may we also be reminded of the glory and splendor that is God’s green earth. Today, join us in a prayer for the creation.
Collect written by The Episcopal Church’s Season of Creation Liturgical Committee
God, maker of marvels, you weave the planet and all its creatures together in kinship: Your unifying love is revealed in the interdependence of relationships in the complex world that you have made. Save us from the illusion that humankind is separate and alone, and join us in communion with all inhabitants of the universe, through Jesus Christ, our Liberator, who topples the dividing walls, and by the power of your Holy Spirit; who live and reign with you for ever and ever. Amen.
Read Psalm 96
- I wonder how God is calling you to be in relationship with this complex world.
- How might you sing the praise of God’s creation?
