Prayers of the people
Watch or 46:37
Let us pray.
Come God of all the earth,
Come Word of God,
Come breath of God,
Creator, mother, teacher, comforter, breathe your breath on us, your people,
that we may bring your love, peace and joy to birth in the world today.
We pray for wisdom, compassionate mother and father, God,
for an end to war, aggression, exploitation, and discrimination.
We pray for those fighting for their lives, for those seeking refuge,
for all who suffer because of their colour, religion, sexuality, gender, disability,
or just because they are poor.
We pray for wisdom, creator God, you who were there before the beginning of the earth.
Our very earth is changing, with the melting of the ice, islands and coastlines are disappearing.
We are ravaged by flood, drought, earthquakes, and fires.
We pray for a real commitment of ordinary people and
from Governments to work to save our land, animals, and the future of our children.
We pray for wisdom, Word of God, teacher of God’s children.
We pray that all people of faith across the world,
join together and raise our voices, and “our cry is to all who live.
To speak for those who cannot speak, to hear those who are not heard,
to see the world with your eyes.
We pray for wisdom, breath of God, comforter and sustainer.
Breathe on us, breath of God, fill us with your love, wisdom, understanding, and compassion.
In a world full of turmoil and despair, breathe in us
the breath of inspiration, hope and the fire of your spirit to live, love and fight
for the unfolding of your story.
Creator God, Word of God, Breath of God, Holy Three in one, Mother
who has given us birth and cradled us since creation, and delighting in the human race,
be with us as we walk from here, and go into our lives,
to be a witness to the unfolding of your creation.
We pray these things, spoken and unspoken,
in the name of Jesus, our saviour, teacher and friend.
