Pause for Prayer : May 2024

29 May 2024

A prayer for voters, as we see and hear about the General Election on the news, and as candidates, churches and individuals prepare to engage.

Loving God, we face a choice.

Be with us as we consider the options

weigh the arguments

and assess the claims and the candidates.

But also prompt us to listen:

to the voices on the margins

to the cry of the earth

and to those who reach a different conclusion to us.

God, we pray that you would

stimulate our minds

stir our hearts

and sanctify our choosing.

Help us also to remember

your command to love our neighbours

both during and after this election.

A prayer for Laudato Si’ Week 2024 (May 19-26)

This year’s Laudato Si’ Week theme is inspired by the symbol for Season of Creation 2024, “firstfruits.” Let us be seeds of hope in our lives and our world, rooted in faith and love.

A Prayer for the Care of our Planet

O Earth, source of life and beauty,
we ask your forgiveness for the damage we have caused
and we promise to care for you with love and respect.
Give us the strength and wisdom
to take concrete actions that will protect your fragility
and promote harmony among all living beings.
May our hands be instruments of healing and restoration,
and may our decisions reflect
a deep commitment to your well-being
and that of generations to come. Amen.

Lord God our Father,

we pledge ourselves to serve you and all humankind,

in the cause of peace,

for the relief of want and suffering,

and for the praise of your name.

Guide us by your Spirit;

give us wisdom;

give us courage;

give us hope;

and keep us faithful now and always.
