Bishop Ellinah Wamukoya’s Prayer

Bishop Ellinah Wamukoya’s Prayer

To be used by people praying and fasting on the first of the month …

Loving God,

Blessed be the works of your hands,

Your Spirit inspires trees and birds and waves into song and dance,

It is that same holy wind that you breathed on your disciples and on all creation,

Let your Spirit blow us to creative love and stewardship that shows reverence for your creation.

Blessed be the works of your hands O Holy One, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, One God now and for ever. Amen

Bishop Ellinah Wamukoya of Swaziland was the first woman bishop in the Anglican Church of Southern Africa.
