Prayers for the Earth – Waste reduction

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 give thanks for the material things of life.

May we use them wisely, and dispose of them thoughtfully.

In business and as individuals, help us to reduce what we waste,

and to remember that, as the earth is our only home,

nothing is altogether thrown away.
