Earth Care Prayer

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


Consider Creation

All people of the earth, each and every nation Arise and rejoice at the continued creation Of beauty, of springtime, the yearly rebirth Of our protector, our home, our own Mother Earth!

Who despite our apparent lack of care Creates bountiful splendor for all to share From mountain tops to the deepest sea all wonderful earthly miracles bursting free!

Yet this miracle of renewal requires the helping hand Of the people to replenish and renew the land From the largest of cities to the most remote farms To unite in spirit and with the strongest arms.

Become a midwife to the birth of each flower A guardian of our resources hour by hour We must learn to take time to appreciate The miracles of which we did not create.

For God has given this wonderful treasure And its preservation will be the measure Of people who recognize and will celebrate The birth of each season before it's too late.

In citizenship, in willingness to toil We must bend our backs and tend to the soil In stewardship, arise and applaud the worth Of the wondrous marvel of our Living Earth!

Consider creation. . . . Consider it now.
