Prayer: Genesis 9: 13

Here’s a prayer of thanksgiving and commitment based on Genesis 9:13.  It comes from the Christian Aid website.

Prayer
(based on Genesis 9:13)

I have set my bow in the clouds,
and it shall be a sign of the covenant
between me and the earth. (Genesis 9:13)


God of constancy
We give thanks for your covenant with us
shown forth in the rainbow of hope.
Give us space to reflect
time to learn
and confidence to work
for a juster, fairer time
when the whole world can unite
within your love.
Now and forever
Amen
