Creator God,

Grant true wisdom and courage to leaders of nations
in response to this growing crisis.
Stir the hearts of all people everywhere to live more responsibly,
and teach all who profess the name of Christ
to lead by example.
Inspire a deeper understanding of what it means to be one world,
and so may we pass on to our children,
and our children’s children,
a world fit to inherit.
We hold it in trust:

teach us to be wise stewards of creation.
