1. I give thanks to God for creation and for being wonderfully made
Where did I feel God’s presence in creation today?

2. I ask for the grace to see creation as God does – in all its splendour and suffering. 
Do I see the beauty of creation and hear the cries of the earth and the poor?

3. I ask for the grace to look closely to see how my life choices impact creation and the poor and vulnerable.
What challenges or joys do I experience as I recall my care for creation? How can I turn away from a throwaway culture and instead stand in solidarity with creation and the poor?

4. I ask for the grace of conversion towards ecological justice and reconciliation. 
Where have I fallen short in caring for creation and my sisters and brothers?
How do I ask for a conversion of heart?

5. I ask for the grace to reconcile my relationship with God, creation and humanity, and to stand in solidarity through my actions. 
How can I repair my relationship with creation and make choices consistent with my desire for reconciliation with creation?

6. Offer a prayer for the earth and the vulnerable in our society
