We are in a climate emergency. More people are going hungry, extreme weather events are more severe and communities are being displaced. People are being pushed back into poverty and the damage to creation is accelerating.
As we contemplate the scale of the crisis, it’s important we keep our eyes fixed on the God of justice, who loves creation and brings restoration and peace – and help our friends and family to do the same. Will you join us in praying about poverty and climate change?
Our SMS alerts will let you know when we have updated the prayer prompt here to inspire prayers for justice and restoration for those living in poverty.
Latest prayer- 22/09/22
The financial costs to people around the world as they respond to climate change are huge, yet those in low-income nations, who are hit hardest by climate change, did the least to cause it. Climate finance was promised from 2020 by wealthy countries to redress this, but it is already over two years overdue.
Please pray for the effectiveness of Tearfund’s new campaign action Send a Coin which seeks to keep climate finance on the agenda of the new Prime Minister and other wealthy nations, and calls for the full delivery of the much-needed climate finance to low-income nations.
Please pray that:
- Tearfund supporters are convicted to take the action and are blessed in doing so
- each coin sent to the Prime Minister will serve to be a strong reminder that serious action is needed, and will attract her attention despite the many other pressing and competing priorities she faces
- this action will help pave the way for positive and influential conversations to happen in the UK government in the coming weeks, and at COP27 in Egypt in November
- climate finance is not delayed any longer and reaches those most in need
We’d love you to keep praying for these things while you also take the action!
