Prayer from the NGOs
God of Glory, God of Grace, we lament the destruction that our greed, consumerism, and endless pursuit of “more” have wrought upon Your beautiful creation. We repent for the misguided choices that we have made and the resulting fragility, devastation, and spoiling of Your earth, Your air, Your seas, and Your creatures. Open our eyes, Lord, that we might follow Your path.
We pray for the preservation of wildlife habitats, for the strength of old growth forests, for the health of the oceans, and for the purity of the air.
We pray for the well-being of all of the beautiful creatures of God’s great earth, especially those that are endangered and facing extinction.
We pray for those in government: our national leaders, our local leaders and government service workers, and those who represent us in the Batasang Pambansa and in the Senate: that You might give them wisdom and courage to discern Your will and Your way.
We pray for all those gathered here today, for people of different faiths, and for environmentalists. May they all be guided by Your goodness, Your wisdom, and Your grace. Amen.
