God Our Creator

God our Creator,
Help us to be more respectful of your Creation;
May we contaminate less, and recycle more,
Treating our natural resources with the respect they deserve;
May we welcome the abundant energy of the Sun,
And harness the clear air’s winds;
Bring us to use crystalline water with care,
Ever grateful for her nourishment and purifying effects;
Restore us to the wonder of finding other creatures
Whose diversity reveals your divine imagination
And offers us multitudes of encounters
With the wider family of animals and plants.
Reunited with our planetary community,
May we sign on as your co-workers
In the care of a burgeoning reality
Heading towards the fulfillment of your Reign,
When we will all be one with You,
Our origin and our common end.

Amen.
