God of the universe,
We thank You for Your many good gifts:
for the beauty of Creation
and its rich and varied fruits,
for clean water and fresh air,
for food and shelter, animals and plants.
Forgive us for the times
we have taken the earth’s resources for granted
and wasted what You have given us.
Transform our hearts and minds
so that we would learn to care and share,
to touch the earth with gentleness and with love,
respecting all living things.
We pray for all those who suffer
because of our waste, greed and indifference.
And we pray that the day would come
when everyone has enough food and clean water.
Help us to respect the rights of all people and all species
and help us to willingly share your gifts
today and always. Amen.
