Prayers for the Earth – Light pollution – 6th August 2023

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
We thank you for the lights of the natural world and for the lights of human ingenuity.
Help us to appreciate the variety of light and the value of darkness.
Grant us wisdom in the use of light,
so as not to pollute the awesome beauty of the night sky.
May we continue to see the stars, and wonder at our place in the universe.
