A Prayer

A poem for Earth Day.


Fathers and mothers,
who abide in the Heavens,
Hallowed be thy names.
Help us create the Kingdom,
on Earth as it is in the Heavens.
Mentor us on our path and protect us from excess.
That we may evolve as a race in love and belief.
Give us confidence to create our world
in beauty and love.
That we may know wisdom and glory
Forever and ever
Amen!


— Lisa Marie Kline
