Creator, we are embarking on a journey
towards greater love for You,
our brothers and sisters, and Your creation.
Holy Spirit, we humbly ask that You guide us on our journey,
that You bring us Your illuminating and warming fire
as we seek to discern and respond to Your will.
Redeemer, we thank You
for the new hope that unites us with all those
who are healing their relationships with God,
creation, and the human family.
We pray for commitment and unity
as we live out an integral ecology
to protect all life on earth.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
