God promises to Creation
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:13-14)
you have given us a dynamic and everchanging planet as a home.
All plants for food, medicines, and joy for their beauty.
All animals, wild and domestic.
All life that creeps and crawls on the earth.
All birds and insects that fill the air
and all that live in the seas.
We thank you for this amazing world
and ask for your guidance in caring for all that you have made.
May we never take for granted you love for all life.
So that we may work together to bring about change
that will not damage
but build a stronger and sustainable world
for the health and wellbeing of future generations.
