Here’s a prayer of petition about creation from Mary Clark/CAFOD.
You cry out with sorrow
God, you made our Mother Earth,
who cries out with sorrow.
May the wonder of your creation be revealed to us:
Water that gives life, not destruction
Crops sown, not destroyed
Pure air to breathe, not polluted
Renew in us a respect for the magic of
A tiny seed
A flowing waterfall
A hovering skylark
Restore us to closeness with you
Call us to change for you and
May your spirit cry out within us always. Amen.
