Week of Prayer – Day 6


Proclaim the good news to all of creation, not just to my small part.

Oh God, who made the world, both body and gift. Your creation groans.

What have we done?

Land and sea polluted, death and destruction, communities gone,families displaced. While we sit in comfort. Your creation groans.

What have we done?

A damaged world, a broken system. Upheld by stupidity, destruction, neglect and greed. An abuse of God’s gift, while we disconnect.

Where is God’s voice, God’s rolling waves of justice?

We too are God’s body, thinking beyond ourselves, seeing consequences, listening for the still small voice, swimming against the tide.

Asking what shall I do?
