Give us the power to trust each other
and to choose the sustainable way
that frees your creation from distress.
Give us the power to share knowledge
and to seek for sustainable solutions
that allow future generations to live on
Give us the power to cooperate
to take decisions and actions
that bear fruit sustainably.
Give us the power
through your Holy Spirit
You who saw that it was good.
On the day after tomorrow as in the beginning.
For your kingdom come
and your glory shine
—This prayer is taken from the book Dancing with the golden frog: Global Warming and the Lord’s prayer, by Herman Heijn, pastor at Doopsgezinde Gemeente Haarlem, Netherlands. Submitted by Creation Care Task Force member Rebecca Froese, a member of Mennonite Church Hamburg-Altona, Germany.
