Prayers for the Earth – Rainforests – 27th 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
In the rainforests of the earth you reveal the diversity of your creation.
Help us, in wonder, to care for your forests,
and in so doing to protect and strengthen the lungs of the earth.
Bless native peoples and forest dwellers, and help us with them
to learn the lesson of our shared belonging and interdependence.
