Prayer Offered for April 20, 2023

Gracious and merciful God, as we prepare to celebrate Mother Earth Day, we recall the words of Robert Shaw:

The greatest threat to our planet

Is the belief that someone else will save it.

Loving God, as we live the theme of this year’s Earth Day, may all of us work together to invest in our future and the future of our children. May we build on the urgency of these times to address all environmental challenges which threaten the health and wellbeing of our human species. Let us renew our commitment to be good stewards of our common home, and learn to love the marvels and wonders of all creation. We ask this in Your name.—AMEN.
