Prayers for Our World, opening words – Thandiwe Dale-Ferguson, USA

Gracious God,
giver of peace, planter of justice, spirit of love,
we lift up to you our world –
giving thanks for its beauty and majesty,
for its many creatures and peoples,
for its bounty and flourishing.
In our thanksgiving, we also remember
those who struggle day in and day out simply to survive,
those caught in the midst of conflict and war,
those affected by natural disaster,
those who are displaced.
