Sue's Prayer Reflections: July

This month’s suggestion is shamelessly lifted from the back of the current Christian Aid Prayer Diary (free from Christian Aid).

In the warmer months this prayer could be done perhaps on your lawn, or in the park, (or on the beach?), but be careful! Remove your shoes and socks, and feel the ground beneath your feet. Thank God for the earth you are standing on, part of the wonder of creation. Slowly begin to walk. With each step, think about the impact your lifestyle has on the planet, - and with the next step, ask God’s forgiveness for our reckless disregard for the effect of our actions, and ask God to show us ways to reduce that impact. If barefoot walking is not possible, even an ordinary walk gives the chance to think about how we are connected to the earth.
