Prayers: “Prayer of the Earth

Space-hanging Earth,
fragile as a Christmas babe
delicate as a Christmas Tree ornament:

nurture us as a mother nurtures children,
like Mary nursing Jesus.
Forgive our hurtful ways.
Help us to fairer sharing.

And so may you sustain all earth's children and all earth's beings
even your Earthly self
unto all generations and
into all time to come.
Amen
