7th November 2022 – Prayers for COP27
Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry. James 1:19
We pray for the participants of COP27,
the decision-makers and the protestors,
the bureaucrats and the prayerful.
May they be gifted with empathy,
with patience and with determination
and with a passion for justice.
May they be good listeners and considered speakers.
May they be guided by science rather than politics,
by the collective needs of the world rather than short term self interest.
Loving and patient God,
may your will be done.
