Ocean Lament

We hold in prayer and lament this day
the terrible suffering of all life-forms
in the Gulf of Mexico.
We grieve the profound marring of your creation,
and the threat to coastal ways of life.
Have mercy o God, have mercy.
Grant wisdom and perseverance
to all who struggle to contain this disaster.
Let those who lost their lives rest in peace.
And send out your Holy Spirit,
to create anew the face of this earth.

(by Teresa Berger, on the PrayTell blog)
