CHRISTIANS FOCUS ON CARE OF CREATION

CHRISTIANS FOCUS ON CARE OF CREATION

In 1989, September 1 was proclaimed as the World Day of Prayer for Creation by the Orthodox Church in 1989.  Since then, many other Christian churches have joined, with Pope Francis most recently in 2015. It was then extended to be a month-long Season of Creation, ending on October 4 (Feast of St. Francis).

Here are some suggestions for prayers and activities for the month and below is a suggested weekly focus and prayer to help you maintain a month-long meditation on God's creation.

Month-long Meditation:

Each morning of the week, pray and meditate on the weekly focus, followed by the Our Father.


9/1 - 9/7:  At the dawn of this day we praise you, O God, for the resources of our earth. We ask for grateful hearts, as we pray for the light of dawn, awakening us to service:  We thank You, God of life.

THE LORD’S PRAYER:  Our Father, Who art in heaven. . . .


 

9/8 - 9/14:  At the dawn of this day we praise you, O God, for the resources of our earth. We ask for grateful hearts, as we pray for the refreshment of water, cleansing us of sin:  We thank You, God of life.

9/15 - 9/21:  At the dawn of this day we praise you, O God, for the resources of our earth. We ask for grateful hearts, as we pray for the sounds of morning, reminding us of neighbors and community:  We thank You, God of life.
