Everlasting God, we acclaim your majesty and pray: 

Holy God, hear our prayer.  

Attune us to the wonder and wisdom of creation, and inspire ways to address desertification. 

Holy God, hear our prayer.  

Lead all people to respect the power of water and fire, and uphold efforts to lessen pollution. 

Holy God, hear our prayer.  

Inspire every faith community to practice just action on behalf of those who are poor. 

Holy God, hear our prayer.  

Our Father . . .  

May God strengthen us to be kind, tenderhearted, and forgiving to one another, through Jesus, the mercy of God. Amen.
