This is a wonderful prayer to use while lighting the Advent Candle … might you or your church use it on one of the Sundays in Advent?
Spirit of God, You established the dance of Creation;
bring life out of death
bring order out of chaos.
Call us to radical action:
to care for the web of Creation
to share our resources justly
and to work for the renewal of our Mother, Earth.
We light this candle as we commit ourselves to fast and pray for climate justice.
