I want to bring up a few important points to answer this issue.
#1 God’s answer to any of our problems and difficulties has never been – “Don’t pray.”
#2 The Climate Change problems we have now are vastly created by human consciousness and only minimally by mother nature – whether believed or not. Those that believe this can know to take steps to help change this. Those that don’t believe this, usually do little to change this and usually create more problems. Sadly, many choose to not believe and not do anything to help, than believe and help the work of turning things around. But the Bible reminds us, “the prayers of a few will save many.” The prayers and meditations of those willing to work will change and influence all things.
#3 The weather and climate change patterns we have now are also partially karmic related and so, like any other karmic energy pattern manifestation – can be changed and healed through the raising of the vibrations through any means, including prayer and meditation. The amount of healing and rebalancing is directly related to the amount of prayer, meditation, and spiritual acts of brotherhood and oneness.
#4 If we’re concerned about what to pray for, always remember to include, “Father God, Mother God, please bring the life-giving help of all kinds for all people and all life according to what you know we all need. Let my prayers go to you to be used to help in whatever way you may know to use them. Here am I, use me and my prayers for your greatest will and service for all life. Amen.”
#5 It’s okay to pray for God’s will to be done, even with regards to weather and climate change, because God’s will has never been to punish and smite, and always been to show mercy and give life – even in the form of healthy weather patterns. God is also desiring for us to learn that praying is worthwhile even if we have to learn how best to do it.
#6 Pray for healthy weather patterns. Pray for balanced weather patterns. Pray “HELP US, GOD!” Pray using no words whatsoever. Pray for whatever you feel okay with, just pray, and then let God decide what is possible with our prayers.
#7 Praying and meditating accomplishes more than “not praying” and “not meditating”.
#8 Praying is like building a bridge, with prayers being like the bricks from which the bridge is built. We can’t cross the bridge when just the first few bricks are in place. The bridge isn’t ready for use until the all of the needed bricks are in place, too.
#9 Praying is like rowing a boat. With each paddle in the water, and with each effort to row the boat, the boat moves eventually towards its destination. But, when we stop rowing, there is no progress towards any destination and we are left to the currents made by others’ Karma.
#10 What are we willing to pray for those we love? Are we willing to pray for healthier weather for those we love, because we know their lives will be helped from it?
#11 Nothing can stop God from helping in our lives more than a closed mind or a closed heart.
#12 Don’t put God to the test. Don’t guess what God needs to do or not do. God is not the one here needing to learn something – in this case – to pray – even if it’s for healthy weather patterns and healing the climate changes.
#13 God is not seeking just to change things on the outside of us- like the weather, but rather change things on the inside of us. It is this change that we keep with us through time, and eventually changes the outside of us – even the weather.
