Earth Care Prayer

The St. Michael Parish Earth Care Team offers this prayer for your reflection. You might pray it every day this week.

The Earth for Our Children’s Children

Who is fit to hold power and worthy to act in God’s place? Those with a passion for truth, who are horrified by injustice, who act with mercy to the poor and take up the cause of the helpless, who have let go of selfish concerns and see the whole world as sacred, refusing to exploit her creatures or to foul her waters and lands. Their strength is in their compassion; God’s light shines through their hearts. Their children’s children will bless them, and the work of their hands will endure.

Published in ”Prayers for the Earth” by Benetvision, attributed to Stephen Mitchell, based on Psalm 24.
