Churches calling for action to combat Air Pollution

Publish Date: 03-Jun-2019

The United Nations designates 5 June as World Environment Day to promote awareness and action for the protection of our environment. World Environment Day adopts a theme every year, and this year it is “Air Pollution”. The Church must shoulder the burden of stewardship and reconciliation with the earth. The HKSKH Task Force for the Ministry of Environmental Conservation invites all faithful in parishes and mission churches to pray for the environment, reflect upon the issues of air pollution, take actions to deal with the problem in our daily living, and reduce global warming.

Prayer for World Environment Day

Heavenly Father, we thank you for giving us this beautiful land: we have sunshine, rain, and air to nourish earth, sea and sky. For our greed, our excessive exploitation and consumption of resources, polluting the air you have given to us, we beg for your forgiveness. Give us hearts to cherish your creation, so that we can work together to protect the land. We also pray for all countries in the world that they may work together to formulate better environmental policies to improve our atmosphere so that we can again see the life-force provided to the world through the growth of nature, and in so doing find a closer relationship with you. In the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
