Prayer of the Earth Community (Rev. Nancy Wright)

"Prayer of the Earth Community
We thank you God, our nurturing Mother on Earth, for the many opportunities we have to enhance the Earth community today. We are grateful for Inday’s ability to listen to and to learn from all things that interact to nurture the fertility of the soil and community. We pray that she may continue to live in harmony with the natural world. Bless her family, whose concern for the soil has taught her the wisdom of living lightly on the Earth. Guide her to use that wisdom to promote the health, fertility, and diversity of all beings here and throughout the Philippine archipelago. Lastly, we thank you for the food and the solidarity we share with all creatures. WE pray for all who are denied a nurturing habitat. Guide us to appreciate in a mutually supportive way the life-enhancing role of every being so that all things can join the liturgy of all creation in praising You. Amen."
