Prayer for COP27
Teach them to your children, talking about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land that the Lord swore to your ancestors to give them, as long as the heavens are above the earth. Deuteronomy 11: 19-22
We pray for all the participants,
the decision-makers and the protestors,
the bureaucrats and the prayerful,
influencers and bankers,
for producers and consumers.
May the agreements and the pledges that are made this week
bring justice and confidence,
safety and security for all.
May they seek solidarity and cooperation above all else.
May all that is pledged, be honoured and enacted
for the wellbeing of our world and our futures.
Loving and patient God,
may your will be done.
