A Prayer for the Sea

From NeoHasid.org

Elohei haruchot (God of all Spirit),

You gave all living creatures a rainbow covenant, to not destroy the Earth because of human sins, and now we are drowning the seas of the Gulf of Mexico with oil that we have unleashed.

Please give us wisdom and strength to heal the seas; please protect the lives touched by that oil.

May the holy sparks that our hands have scattered be restored to the Tree of Life.

And may the whole of creation return to its original strength, so that we may see the rainbow, rejoicing and beautified with its colors.

Yashuv hakol l'eitano harishon, v'niratah hakeshet, sas umitpa'er b'govanin.
Barukh chei ha'olamim.
