Almighty father, we raise our hearts to You in gratitude for the wonders of creation of which we are part of, for your providence in sustaining us in our needs and for Your wisdom that guides the course of the universe
We acknowledge our sins against you and the rest of creation.
We have not been good stewards of nature.
We have confused Your command to subdue the earth
The environment is made to suffer our wrongdoing and now we reap the harvest of our abuse and indifference
Global warming is upon us. Typhoons, floods, volcanic eruptions, and other natural calamities occur in increasing number and intensity
We turn to you our loving Father and beg for forgiveness for our sins.
We ask that we, our loved ones and our hard earned possessions be spared from the threat of calamities, natural and man made.
We beseech You to inspire us to all grow into responsible stewards of Your creation and generous neighbors to those in need.
