#earthday + A Prayer for the Environment:
Awake! Awake! Holy One, we are the choir. We are awakened to the terrible things we have done to your gift of the garden. Now our plea is for the music, notes and words, that we need to sing to those around us who are in a deep sleep of unawareness. Our hearts are full to overflowing with the pain of what we see around us. Give us, we pray, the melody for awakening our human family. Amen.
(This prayer was written by Holly Hallman for a Presbyterians for Earth Care event.)
