My Vision of Divine Creator-Lent 2, 2020

Prayer Focus: God as Divine Creator

Lord God, our Divine Creator, we praise You and thank You for the beauty of this creation that You have made… that You designed well before it ever came to be.  We praise You that out of nothing ex nihilo that You created the stars in the sky, the sun, the moon, the earth, the plants, the animals, the fish, and the birds.  We praise You that every part of the creation which You have made was very good in the beginning!  We praise You for the way in which You created this world and we ask, Lord, that we would be mindful always that we are created beings.   That it’s our responsibility to care for this beautiful creation which You have made.  That it is our pleasure to receive what the land yields and to shepherd over this world which You have made.  We’re sorry, Father, for the many ways that we have not respected the land.  We’re sorry, Lord, for failing to care for this creation including the animals and other people.  We are seeing anew, Lord, that there is an Image of Yours in every human being– there’s not a man, a woman, a child, or a fetus who has not been endowed with Your Image.  This fact is irrespective of our race, gender, upbringing, or other demographic.  It is irrespective the level of sin that we have because Your Image is still there, however broken in humanity it may be on account of our sin.  We know that it wasn’t always this way in the beginning.  There was a time in which humanity had Your perfect Image.  This world, too, was absolutely perfect before we disrespected Your boundaries, violated Your commands, transgressed against Your kindness, love, and mercy.  We thank You Lord for Your forgiveness—a forgiveness that was bought on the Cross by Jesus Christ Your Son.  We thank You Lord that Your mercies are new every morning and You give us opportunities to live as we ought.  Grant that we would live as self-aware created beings worshipping You, our Creator, who alone deserves to be worshiped.  We praise You and thank You for this vision of You as our Divine Creator.  Keep us humble and help us bring glory to You for all the good You have done to us.  Amen.
