In honour of the fallen trees and displaced animals and sea creatures... a prayer

I have been sickened and horrified to see the pictures of the ocean creatures trudging through oil through the Gulf. My heart hurts to know of all of the trees that have been damaged and destroyed by a recent tornado in my little town of Leamington. It is impossible to not feel somehow responsible for contributing to these events. We create the demand and the environment is paying. However, there is a shift, an environmental movement - let us all awaken and embrace this change!

A Prayer about Nature and God's Creation


Loving Father and Creator of all we come to you today deeply grateful for your creation. As we look around us we are amazed at the greatness and majesty of all that you have made. Nature around us speaks of your greatness - the vast expanse of the sky, the mountains, trees, lakes and streams speak of your great design. You have given us such beauty in the colors of the rainbow, the beauty of flowers and fields. Words cannot adequately express the magnificence of all you have created. We join in praise with the writer of the psalms when he says, "O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth." May we show our love and reverence to you, our Lord, by caring for all that you have created. We humbly give you praise and thanks. Amen

Speak words and act from peace and love today, enjoy the day!
Sincerely, Kelly
