Prayers for creation

As Christians, we are called to care for God’s creation, and all the goodness within it.

For many vulnerable communities around the world, climate change threatens creation – and people’s livelihoods. You can find out more about All We Can’s work to mitigate the impacts of climate change on marginalised communities here.

A prayer based on Psalm 95:1-7

Creator God,
In your hand are the depths of the earth.
The mountain peaks belong to you, The sea is your creation,
The dry land is your handiwork,
The fruit of the land is your design,
The taste of the produce is your gift,
And we are your people,
a flock under your care.
We give you our thanks and praise, O God.
Amen.

A prayer for good stewardship

Father of creation:
You made all things through love
You spoke with authority and life sprang into being
You made us in your wonderful image to be stewards of your world. Forgive us, Lord:
When we have failed to reflect you
When we have lived with selfish intention, placing our own needs above those of others
When we have misused or polluted creation
When we have acted in a way that has caused disadvantage and hurt.
Help us, Lord, to reflect you:
By being faithful stewards of your creation
By showing love and concern for the world.
May our actions produce lasting fruit,
for the sake of your Kingdom
Amen
