Theology of creation
Prayers and liturgical resources
Prayer for the wellbeing of all creation:
Creator God, giver of life
You sustain the earth and direct the nations
In this time of climate crisis
Grant us clarity to hear the groaning of creation and the cries of the poor
Challenge us to change out lifestyles
Guide our leaders to take courageous action
Enable your church to be a beacon of hope
Foster within us a renewed vision of your purposes for your world
Through Jesus Christ our Lord
By and for whom all things were made. AMEN
Prayer offered by Archbishop of York Stephen Cottrel, prior to COP26.
