World Prayer

As part of my Sunday Prayer post, I thought I’d pray for the hundreds of millions of people from more than 120 countries and regions who got involved in yesterday’s Earth Hour event.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We come together and praise your Holy name. We thank you for inspiring us to look after the gifts you give us. These gifts include this very earth. The lands, the seas, the skies, and the animals, birds and fish, all provide us with the sustenance and protection we need.

And your gifts don’t stop there. You have given us each other. This includes not only our close friends and families, but also our neighbours. It includes the people we don’t know and the people we don’t understand. We thank you for all of them because we can all encourage each other, teach each other, and love each other in your name.

And Lord, we praise you for bringing so many people together to gain awareness of our environment. We praise you for the work you continually do through us and for us, whether we know it or not. We pray that this Earth Hour event stays in our minds for a long time so that we remember the little things we can do to make a difference.

In your name we pray,

Amen.

What a wonderful prayer. Thank you for posting it. We did Earth Hour, but I got the feeling many Norwegians didn't know about it.
By the way, thanks for becoming a follower on my blog! :-)

Yes, I only found out about it through a local newspaper. Then of course I went to the official website and realised it was huge. Oh, and I also saw a poster for it in a shop that sold candles :)
