COP26 Prayer 

 

For the beauty of creation and the wonders of nature
    Lord, we thank you
For your abundant provision for all our needs
    Lord, we thank you
For scientists and activists and those who teach us
    Lord, we thank you
 
We are sorry where we have not looked after the world around us
    Lord, have mercy
We are sorry for taking all that You have made and all that You have provided for granted
    Lord, have mercy
We are sorry for thinking of ourselves to the exclusion of others faraway and generations yet to come
    Lord, have mercy
 
Show us how to live as stewards and custodians of your creation
    Lord, hear our prayer
May your creator Spirit brood over the delegates at COP26 bringing order out of contention
    Lord, hear our prayer
Grant insight, wisdom and courage to our leaders and decision-makers
    Lord, hear our prayer
