A Prayer for Our Earth

All-powerful God, you are present in the whole universe 
and in the smallest of your creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
Pour out upon us the power of your love,
Fill us with peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters,
harming no one.that we may protect life and beauty.
O God of the poor, help us to rescue the abandoned
and forgotten of this earth, so precious in your eyes.
Bring healing to our lives, that we may protect the world and not prey on it,
that we may sow beauty, not pollution and destruction.
Touch the hearts of those who look only for gain at the expense of the poor and the earth.
Teach us to discover the worth of each thing, to be filled with awe and contemplation,
to recognize that we are pro-foundly united with every creature 
as we journey towards your infinite light.
We thank you for being with us each day.
Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle for justice, love and peace on this day
