October- A Prayer for our Home and World
You hold us and everything you have made
In your loving care.
You are in the whole universe,
And in every tiny creature.
Pour out on us God, the power of your love,
And teach us to care for life and for beauty.
Fill us with peace,
So that we do not harm others,
But love them like sisters and brothers.
God, we know that people who are poor are very special to you,
And you want us to love them too,
So they are not forgotten.
We ask you to change us
So that we protect your world,
Not destroy it.
Change the hearts of people
Who only care about themselves and money,
Instead of caring about people and the earth.
“We walk in the footsteps of Jesus so that we may have life in all its fullness”
