Pray With Us

Each day we pray for the needs of individuals and of the world

12TH DECEMBER 2019

Lord

We know that you care for us, our country and all our concerns

Be with all those that are involved with the election tomorrow, those that want to run our country and those that will support them. Give each of them the grace of a heart that reaches out to people, a mind that understands the complexities of the situation and the humility to realize we have to work together and need the wisdom of even those that support a different colour and party

 

Be with us the voters – open our minds so we use our vote wisely and when all the votes are counted have the courage to work with those that have a vision for the good of all.

Amen

for our African sisters and also for those in our own country dealing with flood damage

for all of us as we find new ways of combating climate change

 

Prayer for climate change

You spoke into the silence
Light suffusing darkness.
You spoke into the silence
Blowing clean life giving air into the space
You spoke into the silence
Warmth and cold infusing the air
You spoke into the silence
Solid ground formed out of gushing water.
You spoke voice carrying over the sound
People, plants and animals came to life.
You spoke each creation balanced against the next so life would be abundant and sustainable.
You saw everything you had made and declared it to be very good.
You spoke choosing to give us humans stewardship over all that You had made.
We speak and act
Darkness of pollution limits light levels and damages the air we breathe.
We speak and act
Ground poisoned, burnt, stripped bare.
We speak and act
Spoiling, limiting, destroying quality of life and life itself.
We speak and act
Without hearing Your call over the noise of the world to be good stewards.
You speak. You create. You want us to be stewards of Your creation.
We come to You to re-learn how to care for the earth and people you have made.

Creating a community of love, filled with hope
