ENAW PRAYER for wildlife affected by the Gulf Coast Disaster:
Creator God, look with compassion and mercy on your many creatures impacted by the tragic oil spill in the Gulf Coast. We are sorry and we repent of our human sins of selfishness, apathy, and greed that have contributed to this disaster. We pray for the restoration of the wildlife and their habitats and for an outpouring of concern to assist and protect your creatures. Ease their suffering and gather them up under Your loving wings, in Christ's name we pray. Amen.
