Today’s Prayer: Gracious God, who made the covenant promise with our ancestors, we begin this day a rebellious people. We want to act out your intentions for us, but we keep getting mixed up by all the glitter of the world around us. You tell us to honor creation, and we use other people, animals and plant life only to meet our wants. You offer daily bread to every living creature, and we steal that bread from our sisters and brothers in the name of greed. You promise us new life, and we shrink back from it is fear. Heal us, God, lest we destroy ourselves. We need your presence among us. Amen. (Adapted from the United Nations Environmental Sabbath Prayer)
