The Gaia Prayer

 

The earth is the Lord’s and all that fills it,

the compass of the world and all who dwell therein. (Psalm 24.1)

 

Creator God,

with awe and wonder

we look on the beauty of the Earth;

with tears and sorrow

we see its brokenness and pain;

with hope and commitment

we look to the future

to a greener, cleaner, peaceful world,

an Earth that speaks of heaven.

Amen.
