Prayer for the heatwave in Europe

18 Luglio 2022

We pray for Europe where the heatwaves have increased the number of wildfires in many countries. The temperature has been rising by 40 degrees Celsius in many cities, and burning homes are threatening livelihoods. Families have been evacuated from their homes, while the flora and fauna has been destroyed by flames. The heatwaves are also impacting farmers, with severe droughts and declining lake levels and water source. Let us keep up our efforts to demand climate justice and take action in our daily lives to address climate change.
