As we reach the end Christian Aid week, we share in the tea-time prayer.
‘Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!’
God of all of life, waiting for the water to boil we confess and lament the rise of temperature that has led to a climate crisis across this beautiful planet. We wait, impatient for change.
Pouring out hot water on loose-leaf or tea bag, into teapot or favourite mug, we pour out our intercessions for a change of heart by politicians to put planet and people first.
Stirring teabag, leaves or sugar we ask that you would stir in us
a passion to take action, to do all we can at this critical hour to take care of our common home and amplify the call for climate justice.
Drinking that first satisfying sip we give thanks for the day when ‘they will hunger no more, and thirst no more’. Infuse us with a strongly brewed vision of your creation healed and restored. Amen
