Care for our Common Home Prayer

All-powerful God, You are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of Your creatures.

Pour out upon us the power of Your love, that we may protect life and beauty.

Fill us with peace, that we may live, as brothers and sisters, harming no one.

O God of the poor, help us to rescue the abandoned and forgotten of this earth, so precious in Your eyes.

Teach us to discover the worth of each thing, to be filled with awe and contemplation, and to recognize that we are profoundly united with every creature.

Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle for justice, love and peace. AMEN.
