As we journey through Christian Aid week, we use prayers suggested for us by the charity.
‘Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!’
We pray that the voices of indigenous communities may be heard and heeded as we learn how to live in harmony with nature. We pray for a rapid and just transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. We pray for a radical change of heart for politicians. We pray that as a global community we will care for our common home and for people living in poverty, where the right thing is done in the right way.
Spirit of God who hovered over the waters, harness your power in us to live faithfully and in harmony with the rhythms of righteousness, for the restoration of creation and the glory of your name. Amen.
