A prayer

God, creator of heaven and earth,
it is time for you to come,
for our time is running out
and our world is passing away.
You gave us life in peace, one with another,
and we have ruined it in mutual conflict.
you made your creation in harmony and equilibrium.We want progress, and are destroying ourselves.
Come Creator of all things,
renew the face of the earth.

Come, Lord Jesus,
our brother on the way.You came to seek
that which was lost.
You have come to us and have found us.
Take use with you on your way.
We hope for your kingdom
as we hope for peace.
Come, Lord Jesus, come soon.

Come, Spirit of Life,
flood us with your light,
interpenetrate us with your love.
Awaken our powers through your energies
and in your presence let us be wholly there.
Come, Holy Spirit.

God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
triune God,
unite with yourself your torn and divided world,
and let us all be one in you,
one with your whole creation,
which praises and glorifies you
and in you is happy.
Amen.

~J├╝rgen Moltmann, The Source of Life, 145.
