Open & Unafraid: A Prayer




Father of Creation,

God of Compassion,

Our hearts are heavy,

Our souls are sad,

For we are overwhelmed,

By waves of climate grief.


Despite knowing what we know,

Humanity moves towards the point of no return.

Creation Groans,

Heaven Weeps,

Our hearts lament and grieve.


Restore unto us the joy of your salvation,

And grant us your peace.


Lord Jesus Christ,

The one who walked a trail of tears,

We are are weary and heavy laden,

Weary with tears.

Heavy laden with disappointment.

We come to you, for you invite us,

To find rest and restoration for our souls.


Temperatures rise,

Sea levels rise.

Creation Groans,

Heaven Weeps,

Our hearts lament and grieve.


Restore unto us the joy of your salvation,

And grant us your peace.


Spirit of the Living God,

The One who speaks to our very depths,

You invite us to be open and unafraid,

Vulnerable without shame,

Honest and intimate.

Healer of all hurts,

Heal us and make us whole.


The beast of unrestrained capitalism,

Puts profit before people,

Creation Groans,

Heaven Weeps,

Our hearts lament and grieve.


Restore unto us the joy of your salvation.

And grant us your peace.


Holy Trinity of Love,

You have invited us into your divine embrace.

And have filled our hearts with love.

In the storm of climate grief,

You are our rock and harbour,

To you be praise, honour and glory.


Amen
