The Passion of the Earth

Infinite Spirit, when I pray each day
for shelter for the homeless,
let me not ingore the pet without a home;
As I ask protection for those in areas
of turmoil and unrest,
let me not forget endangered species of life;
When I pray that the hungry be fed,
let me be mindful
that all God's creatures have need of sustenance;
As I ask Devine assistance for those afflicted
by fire, flood, earthquake, storm or drought,
let me remember that this includes every living thing;
In seeking miracle cures for human disease,
may I also speak for the well-being of the planet itself
Let the words of my mouth,
the meditation of my heart
and the actions of my life be as one,
that I may live each day in harmony
with Mother Earth
