Prayers for the Earth – Human beings and the environment

Each week in August we are posting a prayer (taken from the book 'Praying for the Earth' by Rob Kelsey). We hope these will give us all a focus for our prayer and encouragement in the changes we are trying to make.

Dear Lord

As you made humankind according to your likeness,

so help us, like you, to see the goodness of creation.

May we see ourselves as part of a greater whole,

remember our duty of care towards the earth,

and live in balance with the natural world.
