Monthly prayers

July

6 July (Fourth Sunday after Pentecost)

Creator God,
Who sustains all, loves all, and has given the resources of the Earth to all and not just a few,
We give thanks for persistent people everywhere;
Small farmers feeding most of the world,
People setting up seed banks, maintaining biodiversity
And never giving up in the struggle for climate justice.
We are connected with seven billion people,
In a global community of trade, food, habitat.
Give us courage and faith to put ourselves on the line for climate justice.
For we are each of us one in a million;
Together we stand strong.


13 July (Fifth Sunday after Pentecost)

Brother Christ,
Who came to share our lives, to encourage and liberate us,
You live among us all.
We give thanks for dedicated people everywhere,
Challenging abuses of power, exposing corrupt practices
And never giving up in the struggle for climate justice.
May we play our part in challenging greed and wastefulness,
Creating more sustainable communities,
And treading more lightly on the Earth.
For we are each of us one in a million;
Together we stand strong.


20 July (Sixth Sunday after Pentecost)

Spirit of God,
Who works among people,
Who moves our hearts and lives with love,
We give thanks for the people and places we care about.
And we pray for all who suffer anguish for the people and places they love,
For all whose livelihoods are threatened by a changing climate,
For all who work to improve the future for all our children.
May we join our voices in tears of protest and songs of hope,
And never give up in the struggle for climate justice.
For we are each of us one in a million;
Together we stand strong.


27 July (Seventh Sunday after Pentecost)

O Holy Trinity,
Whose promise is of a life
Where all will flourish and be respected,
We pray that, as we live by your grace and sharing,
We may be led to use less energy,
Share resources more wisely
And compel our politicians to speak out for climate justice.
For we are each of us one in a million;
Together we stand strong.
