climate change day of prayer
The Climate Change Day of Prayer is an initiative of the Environmental Issues Network of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland and is supported by a number of British church leaders. These resources will enable churches or other groups to prepare for and run a Day of Prayer, when people can take time out to reflect on the issues and pray together at this critical time in our history. A key aim is to pray for God's will to be done during the decisive Copenhagen COP 15 talks in December.
Sunday October 4th was the first agreed Day of Prayer. This material is also ideal for use at any time before and during the Climate Change talks in Copenhagen from 7th to 18th December 2009. You can arrange a Day of Prayer as appropriate in your local situation - or you can use the material for shorter times of reflection during lunchtimes or services. The weekend of December 5th and 6th, when the WAVE demonstrations take place in London and Glasgow would be a very appropriate time.
We also encourage people to combine their prayer with fasting as a mark of our concern and the crucial nature of these talks. Our suggested focus for praying and fasting will be for 15 days beginning on Friday 4th December (as delegates are briefed and leave their offices).
Although CTBI is hosting these resources, they have been written by Dr Isabel Carter, in coordination with Operation Noah. For more information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
