Prayer of Repentance

O Lord, sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things. In your kindness and love, you have given humanity rule and stewardship over your creation, to live as your image-bearers in a world you created for your delight.

But we have turned from your will, often abusing Creation for greedy and selfish purposes. Now we are facing global climate disruption and other crises as a result of our rebellion.

Forgive us of our sins, and the sins of our society, which have increasingly degraded what you created for good. In your kindness, lead us to repentance. Create in us a clean heart, ready and willing to carry out your will on earth as it is in heaven.

For the glory of your name and for the benefit of all humanity and Creation. Amen.
