Environmental problems are a spiritual struggle…that’s why we pray.
Join dozens of organizations and hundreds of individuals around the globe praying for a unified response to climate change issues. Even as Christianity is spreading and growing around the world, many still face increasing challenges to their livelihoods and health due to environmental degradation.
Global climate change strengthens severe weather that already threatens the livelihoods of our neighbors in Florida and Bangladesh, Kenya and California. It increases food and water insecurity that heighten tensions between nations and exacerbates tragedies like what is happening in Syria. People, created in the image of God, are and will be driven from their homes and even killed by more intense heat waves, hurricanes, and drought. If we love our neighbors, we must take climate change seriously. Our faith in God as Creator compels us to care for his creation.
As with any problem, especially ones as politically charged and complex as climate change, we recognize our need to pray.
