As the oceans rise

O Lord, we pray for courage
as the oceans rise
and people suffer.
Let us care for one another,
and protect our precious home. 

O Lord, we pray for strength
as the glaciers thaw 
and our Earth is in pain.
Give us the spirit to do more.
We must all act together,
and protect our fragile home.

O Lord, we pray for hope
as the temperatures soar.
To the tears of your Creation
we will not close our eyes.
We will all work together 
to preserve our common home. 

We ask this through Christ Our Lord,

Amen.
