Prayers for the Week of August 16, 2020

Please feel free to join us this week in the prayers we prayed in worship, Sunday, August 26, 2020:

Creating, loving God,

you made all that is: land and sea and sky,

plants and trees and fish

and birds and animals,

even humans, even us,

You created all that is

and you called us good,

and then, on the seventh day,

when you beheld and loved all you had made,

you invited us to rest with you.

In the quiet of this Sabbath morning,

we bring our prayers to you.

In a world whose pain throbs

in climate emergency,

we pray for all life that

lies in the path of

or is recovering from

hurricane, or derecho,

or wildfire, or excessive heat.

Help us to care for each other;

show us ways to live on this planet,

our only home,

in ways that sustain and repair and make whole.
