Practical action

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.
