Prayer for COP28

It’s hard to know what to do about the COP28 Climate Conference in Dubai. We know that it will be hobbled by big oil lobbyists and short-termist governmental perspectives. Despite this, we must call on Christians and others of good will to amplify the voices of those even now being immiserated by climate change. And we must pray.

Morning prayer

At 8am every morning during COP28, from 30 Nov to 12 Dec, there will be 10 minutes of prayer and reflection, focusing on the theme of the day. This will be on Zoom and led by a team from Green Christian.

The sessions will be recorded and up on our YouTube channel each day for those who wish to join with the prayers but cannot make 8am.

MEROUR Christine:

November 29, 2023

Hello, I'll be very happy to participate and to send you one of my text but I can only write it in french. The poesy can't be translate. I am so sorry about. It speaks about flood and fire all other the world. thank you for your induilgence. Christine Et DEMAIN ? Les forêts sont en feu, en très grande souffrance Au pays de Verlaine, au doux pays de France. Grand brasier en Provence et en Occitanie, Fournaise abandonnant : cendres, rage et furie, Langues toute embrasées, vivaces, violentes, Horizon flamboyant, crépitant sur les sentes. Que restera-t-il donc, de la faune et la flore, De l’infâme brasier qui avale et dévore, Des arbres se mourant sur un sol en fumée ? Soustrait à nos regards, terre vampirisée, Le feu couve, se glisse et poursuit son chemin Sous les pieds aguerris des pompiers, lance au poing. Nous avons tout cassé, tout souillé, tout gâché. Tout rêve d’avenir, à jamais menacé. Les champs sont inondés de pluies incontrôlables, écrasant les épis, saccageant les vignobles ; les vents et les marées se font plus violents, L’eau commence à manquer, que dire à nos enfants. Nous avons tout cassé, tout souillé, tout gâché. Nous avions tout hier ! Comment y renoncer ?
