Prayer for All of God's Creation
Prayer is essential for the NRCCC. For while we employ science, technology, media, and even our biblical and theological resources in efforts to value, protect, and nourish creation, we recognize that the move of God is central. So we thank God for life, thank God for calling us to the task of creation care, and we thank God for equipping and empowering us for this holy work. And we beseech God to lead us to right attitudes, discernment of truth, and vigor for the work. And we ask God to move in the hearts and minds of all of us, friend and foe, to bring us closer to God's will and everloving presence.
NRCCC invites friends to submit prayers from our Jewish and Christian partners.

Connie Hanson is one of the NRCCC Steering Committee members, who also is the leader of "Christians Caring for the Creation (CCC). "The mission of Christians Caring for Creation (CCC) is to provide the opportunity for Christians across the country to pray for each other and our Lord's precious creation. We endeavor to do this by sending out email Praise Reports and Prayer Requests concerning those in our CCC Prayer Network; concerning those who are working to protect, preserve, and restore God's creation; and, concerning the creatures, forests, and causes that need our help and prayers." To receive regular prayer updates, contact Connie at Christians Caring for Creation.
