Active Prayers for a Healthy Planet

     by Karen Speerstra

From The Green Devotional: Active Prayers for a Healthy Planet by Karen  Speerstra, Conari Press, 2010

quiet zone

This is the Earth, healed again, growing green and blue. I want you to remember this exactly as it is, and then go and tell the people that if enough of us hold this image in their minds, we can heal the Earth and make it like it was a long time ago.

~ Grandfather Rolling Thunder

Your creation teems with bondaged creatures,
great valleys become dumps,
great oceans become dumped pollution,
fish wrapped in dumped oil,
fields at a loss for dumped chemicals.
So we pray for creation, that has become a dump,
and for all your people
who have been dumped,
and dumped upon.
Renew your passion for life,
Work your wonders for newness,
Speak your word and let us begin again.
In your powerful presence, we resolve to do our proper work.

~ Walter Brueggemann,
from "We are not self Starters" Awed to Heaven, Rooted in Earth
from Green Devotional
