A Prayer for World Climate Change Meetings

The Climate Caretakers Prayer

Creator God,

We thank you for an opportunity to come together as a global community to address such an important issue that is affecting so many people worldwide.

Please be with our leaders from around the globe. Give them wisdom as they seek a universal agreement on climate change. Give them minds and hearts that are open to the cries of those suffering the most from our harmful actions. Guide them to listen to the voices of all and come to a consensus on how to move forward in a manner that will benefit not the most powerful among us, but the most vulnerable.

Please grant us wisdom, as well, as we seek to be lights in our home communities. Keep us from fruitless arguments, and provide us with words of encouragement and edification as we seek to engage positively with those around us on the issue of climate change. Let our words and actions become one, stemming from our love for your creation and your people. Make us instruments for your peace.

Amen.
