A Prayer for Our Earth (Laudato Si)
All powerful God you are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of your creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
Pour out upon us the power of Your love that we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with peace that we may live as brothers and sisters harming no one.
Touch the hearts of those who look only for gain at the expense of the poor of the earth.
Teach us to discover the worth of each thing, to be filled with awe and contemplation,
to recognise that we are profoundly united with every creature
as we journey towards Your infinite light.
We thank You for being with us each day.
Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle for justice, love and peace.
