Here’s a prayer written together by the whole group of participants in our workshop.

CELTIC CLIMATE BLESSING

Bless O God, Creator of us all
Bless to us our beautiful bountiful earth
May she feed us and nourish us

Bless O God, Creator of us all
Bless to us our beautiful bountiful earth
May she continue to nurture and sustain us

Bless O God, Creator of us all
Bless to us our beautiful bountiful earth
May she flourish forever

Bless O God whose mercy is boundless
Bless to us our beautiful bountiful earth
So that we are forgiven the harm we do her

Bless O God, whose mercy is boundless
Bless to us our beautiful bountiful earth
So that she may be healed, restored and renewed

Bless O God, whose mercy is boundless
Bless to us our beautiful bountiful earth
So that we may forever be in communion with you

And so that All Beings may dance in harmony in the Garden of Creation!

Amen
