Counting on … day 373

9th November 2022 

“Germany wants to help Kenya get from 90% renewables to 100%, its BMZ development ministry says. The two countries have announced a partnership at Cop27, with the details to be fleshed out in December. After Kenya’s power needs are met, it can use the electricity to make green hydrogen, BMZ said. ” Climate Home News

On the agenda today at COP27 is finance. Money is crucial if the world is to shift to a net zero economy.

We pray for all the participants,

the decision-makers and the protestors,

the bureaucrats and the prayerful.

May they have the courage 

and the humility to make right decisions.

May they look beyond the short term 

to the long term well being of life on earth. 

May they seek a climate solidarity pact 

not a collective suicide pact.*

May they recognise in each other 

their own brothers and sisters. 

May they understand the importance 

of a family that stays together.

Loving and patient God,

may your will be done.


* UN Secretary General Antonio Guterre
