And hope for a better world
Where everyone is housed
A world of abundance
Bless us on that journey
You entrusted the earth to us
And we have destroyed it
The forests are burning
Animals are dying
Our world is sick
Restore our vision and help us to act bravely to save this precious world
We say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language
Reading Psalm 12
Help, my God, for no one is faithful anymore;
those who are loyal have vanished from the human race.
2 Everyone lies to their neighbour;
they flatter with their lips
but harbour deception in their hearts.
We pray tonight for those in lockdown, for children and teaching staff, for doctors and health workers, for people who are isolated and exhausted, for wise decisions by government, for the people of Bolivia, Belarus, Syria, Yemen, Armenia, Thailand, Nigeria and Hong Kong, for the unrest in the US and the chaos in the UK and for those countries we never hear about, and those we know who need our help and prayers and who we carry in our hearts tonight.
Send you Spirit to heal bodies, minds and spirits and help people to turn away from what harms them. Let your angels be beside them and us at this time and protect us. In Jesus Name we pray.
Bless to us
The moon that is above us
The earth that is beneath us
Friends and family around us
Your image within us
And the rest that is before us.
