Prayers for Creation by John Birch

by Christine Sine

Today’s Lenten prayers are by my friend John Birch who writes beautiful contemporary Celtic prayers and liturgies which are available through his website: Faith and Worship.

Make me a tree, Lord
Sturdy
Deep rooted
Useful.
Support
To those in need,
Shelter
To those who are weary,
Fruit
For those who hunger.
Make me a tree, Lord
Sturdy
Deep rooted
Useful

For the promise of harvest
contained within a seed
we thank you.
For the oak tree
within an acorn,
the bread
within a grain,
the apple
within a pip,
the mystery of nature,
gift wrapped
for us to sow,
we thank you.
