Prayer for the Glasgow Summit 2021

person standing on dock in ocean looking out to horizon, sky is light yellow pink blue gray
For you who enter
the room, who measure
 
the climate, who must be
witness, judge and shepherd,
 
I pray
you will speak with care
 
and listen
until your souls fill
 
with all the wisdom we’ve gathered
in our holy stories.
 
Erect no towers.
Waste no time babbling
 
or fortifying walls
between voices.
 
Mustn’t that narrow bridge
reach across time?
 
Please strengthen it
for our children.
 
Let it extend
over sky, sea and land
 
in sustainable ways.
For you, whose hands
 
carry the world’s burdens,
whose eyes scan the horizon
 
without limit
from your summit,
 
I pray for you,
for us.
