A prayer of lament ~
Creator of all that is,
Spirit of Life:
Bless the tears we shed
for those we have loved and lost,
Bless the heads we bow
for public tragedies and acts of violence.
Bless the sighs we breathe
for endangered species and habitat.
Bless the hands we wring
for the effects of climate change.
Bless us as we lament.
Cradle us as we cry.
Restore us as we look for hope.
