A Prayer for Our Earth

 

 

 

 

 

 

All-powerful God,

you are present in the whole universe

and in the smallest of your creatures.

 

You embrace with your tenderness

all that exists.

 

Pour out upon us the power of your love,

that we may protect life and beauty.

 

Fill us with peace, that we may live

as brothers and sisters, harming no one.

 

O God of the poor,

help us to rescue the abandoned and forgotten

of this earth, so precious in your eyes.

 

Bring healing to our lives,

that we may protect the world and not prey on it,

that we may sow beauty, not pollution and destruction.

 

Touch the hearts of those who look only for gain

at the expense of the poor and the earth.

 

Teach us to discover the worth of each thing,

to be filled with awe and contemplation,

to recognize that we are profoundly united with every creature

as we journey towards your infinite light.

 

We thank you for being with us each day,

encourage us, we pray, in our struggle

for justice, love, and peace.

- Pope Francis, Laudato Si’, http://bit.ly/1Gi1BTu
