Call to Prayer

The Australian Religious Response to Climate Change issues a Call to Prayer:

Let us each pray in our own tradition that communities everywhere will pull together with a common sense of purpose to slow the spread of the coronavirus, enough to allow hospitals to cope and a vaccine to be developed. May this crisis bring out the best in us, by our care with not risking spreading the disease and our offering assistance to those who are suffering because of it. May those afflicted be restored to health.

Let us pray that governments make wise decisions to protect their populations both from the disease itself and the economic impact on vulnerable workers. From this crisis, may humanity grow in wisdom such that we work together more effectively for a fairer, more sustainable world, one in which all people can flourish. Amen.

Along these lines, Avaaz has a great People’s Pledge that’s worth signing and sharing around.
