My Vision of Caring for Your Creation-Lent 5, 2020

Prayer Focus: Stewardship of Creation

Gracious Lord, Your creation is something amazing to behold. The diversity of animals and plants. The splendor of the stars and sky. The complexity of every form of life. The genius of reproduction, both sexual and asexual, the beauty of innocent life, and the grandeur of maturity. When I think about all You have made, I marvel at both the design and the delegation. Who is mankind that You would have placed us as stewards over this awesome wonder, to care, learn, and grow as an act of worship of You? We praise You for the fact of creation and how You brought it to be out of Your wisdom and by Your Word. We praise You for how You designed this world as a harmonious ecosystem with plants and animals dependent upon each other, dependent upon the sun and the rain. Trees grow and may yield fruit and the seed within was designed to replicate the same type of tree, each according to their kind. Animals grow and reproduce and replicate their own species. It is truly remarkable! Help us to see how to take care of what You designed and created. Help us to see that it’s not a political issue at all, but one of faith and worship of the One whose Word brought it to be. Help us to be wise and respectful stewards, never abusing this privilege of delegation, but rather to cherish our role as an act of love toward the creation upon which we are dependent, too. Give us eyes to see how You want us to care for the world and to live in peace and harmony with all You have made. We thank You for Your faithfulness to bring it all to perfect renewal when our Lord Jesus returns. It is in His Name we pray. Amen.
