Father of Creation,
God of Compassion,
We thank you that we gather together
as your sons and daughters.
We thank you for the world
that you have made,
Soil and streams,
Mountains and music,
Flowers and fauna,
Laughter and love,
Dancing and daffodils,
Flamingos and food.
We thank you that we inhabit this world
with non-human worshippers,
Elephants and eagles,
Red kites and racoons,
Monkeys and macaws.
To you be all honour, glory and praise.
Father of Compassion,
We are concerned about this world of yours ,
And this world of ours,
It is our home.
In the face of the climate crisis,
our hearts are restless
and our souls are sad.
Draw near to us as the healer of all hurts.
Father, we ask that you would lead and guide us,
By the power and compassion of the Holy Spirit.
In these strange and difficult days,
we ask that you would mould us,
and shape us into the image of your son,
and our saviour Jesus.
May we, like him, be people of justice.
Come Holy Spirit , We need you.
Come Holy Spirit, Fill us afresh.
Come Holy Spirit, Empower us.
In Jesus’ name we pray,
