Agenda for a new creation

E Te Atua, Kaihanga o te ao,
God, Creator of our world,
we pray for Papatuanuku,
our fruitful mother Earth,
sustaining every living creature
but threatened today
from global abuse by humans
of its fragile resources.
Let us renew our resolve
to ensure that whatever we do
will enhance Earth’s life
for now and generations to come.
May our dreams help Earth’s promise
to unfold, enabling your mercy
to bless our world with abundance.
Amen.
