We thank You for your good creation,
in which we can find abundant life.
We thank You our Government is taking time
to consider ceasing further oil exploration in our land and seas.
We confess we continue to pollute
your good creation with carbon gases.
We hope and pray for a sense of urgency,
so our grandchildren may live
free of the harms of an extreme climate.
We ask this especially for our Pacific Island neighbours,
whose islands are drowning.
