The Earth is Miraculous
by Dunscore Parish Church (Scotland)
Creator God, this earth is
miraculous and beautiful.
Forgive our confusion and
inaction as we confront the
challenges of climate change.
In the light of your truth,
seen so clearly in the life
and teaching of Jesus,
help us to re-examine ourselves and
our lifestyle choices and see clearly
the implications of how we live
on all that sustains life on
May we follow your leading in caring
for every aspect of this precious world,
which you made and love.
Throughout history you have moved people
to do amazing things
for the sake of their neighbours.
Inspire us now to work together,
as your people, to change
priorities in the way we live,
so that we build a fair and safe world
for all your creation;
a world where your will is done as it is in heaven.
