Prayers for the Planet

Earth Prayer

The earth is yours and mine
And the glorious sky.
As you made me
So you made the starling
And the owl
The glorious oak and elm.

In weaving your wisdom
You formed the sea
And her melodious song
Harmonising with the whale and the bird

You are in me
And above me
You are below me and beside me.
You created worlds within worlds
Gifts beyond understanding
Beauty beyond measure
Captured in a sphere of perfect blue.

And so we bow to you...
Call upon angels and spirits,
In the leaves and born on the air
Implore you
With power
And glory
To give us strength
That we may share.
In worship and wisdom this day.

Let’s join in mind, and spirit
In prayer and love to bring healing
To this most wonderful of worlds -
For when this world suffers, we suffer.
For we are all as one.

To the Air

Spirits of the air
Riders of the wind
I hear you -
And marvel;
Your invisible powers
Are for all to see.

Your song is beautiful and terrible
As you rage across the white wastes
Of this, our perfect planet -
Your siren music shrieks
Across the Tundra
Howls across the manicured
lawns and condos of Florida -
Whipping the leaves of palm trees
Whisking froth on giant seas
Screaming and diving
North, South East and West
Your power is supreme.

But on sunny days
In gentle meadows
Resting on a hot beach
We long for your touch
Your perfect breeze -
Cool, loving and gentle
And we thank you.
