Prayer: A Harvest of Hope

Here’s a prayer of commitment related to creation care.  It comes from the Christian Aid website.

A Harvest of Hope

God of grace and glory,
we are so grateful for the leadership of extraordinary people,
shining light into the darkness of climate disaster,
transforming a curse into a blessing,
the gift of salt into a new harvest of hope.

Make us like that, Lord,
so that our faith is not in our words but in our lives,
not in what we say, but in what we do;
passing on your love like the salt that blesses,
like a city on a hill, like a lamp on a stand,
light for life, your light for the world.
