Prayer for the Healing of Creation

“God, renew”

The “Prayer for the Healing of Creation,” like the “Prayer for the Healing of the Nations” comes out of Singing our Prayer: A Companion to Holden Prayer around the Cross.

The assembly’s continuing response in “Creation” is “God, renew.” That comes between each petition and becomes, effectively, a chanted prayer for renewal. This and “Nations” are some of my favorite litanies of all time.

The Psalm today was a selection from Psalm 98.
