PRAYER OF INVOCATION

 

Creator of sunshine and rain, Christ of pleasure and pain, Spirit of virtuous gain, we worship you as those who look for rainbows as evidence of your covenant of mercy not to destroy but to renew and reform us and our creation spoiled by greed and careless use. Receive us with the

intercession of Jesus Christ, for his sake. Amen
