Take the water-bottle challenge this Lent. Help preserve our environment and clean water.

Today ______,

 

I _________________________ accept the challenge to care more for the earth, because

I believe in clean water for all of God’s children. I will avoid bottled water and consider what other changes I can make during the next 40 days to be a better steward of the earth.

 

 

It’s for our children and our future.
Let us Pray.

Gracious God, your amazing love extends through all time and space, to all parts of your creation, which you created and called good. You made a covenant with Noah and his family, putting a rainbow in the sky to symbolize your promise of love and blessing to every living creature, and to all successive generations. You made a covenant with Abraham and Sarah, blessing them and their descendants throughout the generations. You made a covenant with Moses and the Israelite people to all generations, giving them the 10 commandments and challenging them to choose life. In Jesus, you invite us to enter into a new covenant, in communion with all who seek to be faithful to you.

As people of faith, we are called into a covenant. Your covenant of faithfulness and love extends to the whole creation. We pray for the healing of the earth, that present and future generations may enjoy the fruits of creation, and continue to glorify and praise you.
