A place to share resources, events, stories of our lives together in mission.

I would ask all churches and people to add prayers for all Gods creatures and living things in the Gulf that are affected by this oil spill.
We must do more at Caring for Creation.

A nice prayer off the ECM website (http://www.episcopalmn.org/weekly_news/article242626c3473452.htm)
Prayer for the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico

We pray today for the preservation of our natural environment, especially the Gulf of Mexico and the lands and waters it touches: Guide those who labor to contain the oil that endangers the creatures of sea and land; Strengthen those who work to protect them; Have mercy on those whose livelihoods will suffer; Forgive us for our carelessness in using the resources of nature, and give us wisdom and reverence so to manage them in the future, that no one may suffer from our abuse of them, and that generations yet to come may continue to praise you for your bounty; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

I include in my prayers specifically all of God's creatures such as: birds, fish, turtles and other creatures that have been soaked in oil or ingested it. It is so sad and we have to look back at ourselves as consumers as well.
