June 13 – A Prayer for Blessing

prayer east africa

O Lord, O God,  Creator of Our land, our earth,
The trees, the animals and humans,
all is for your honor.

The drums beat it out, and people sing about it,
And they dance with noisy joy
that you are the Lord.

We thank you for the beauty of this earth.
The grace of your creation is like a cool day between rainy seasons.
We drink in your creation with our eyes.
We listen to the birds’ jubilee with our ears.

Bless us; bless our land and people.
Bless our forests, bless our fields.
Bless the waters that flow through our land.

Be with the youth in our countries;
prepare them for the service that they will render Amen.
