Prayers for the Earth – Reduction of consumption

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 resources of the world,

and for the many goods available to us.

Grant us wisdom and restraint in our spending and consumption,

help us to be satisfied with enough,

and make us mindful of the value of simple gifts.
