Prayer: Lord, I come to do your will

Lord, allow my ears to listen to the cry of the earth,

the voices of my sisters and brothers,

those who face the harsh reality of climate change.

Lord, I come to do your will.

 

Lord, allow my eyes to see the beauty of creation.

In flowers, creatures, forests, and cities alike.

Lord, I come to do your will.

 

Lord, allow my voice to speak out for justice,

and ensure people living in poverty are heard.

Lord, I come to do your will.

 

Lord, allow my hands to care for the earth,

To toil, to reap, to celebrate.

Lord, I come to do your will.

 

Lord, allow my feet to take the path less trod,

to walk the extra mile,

to take your message out to the world.

Lord, I come to do your will.
