This what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool” (Isaiah 66:1; NLT).
“My hands have made both heaven and earth; they and everything in them are mine” (Isaiah 66:2; NLT).
Do not hold against us the sins of past generations; may your mercy come quickly to meet us, for we are in desperate need (Psalm 79; 8; NIV).
Come quickly, LORD (Psalm 40:13; NLT).
Your world –
With our inequality,
And our endless exploitation
Of the earth’s finite resources.
Come quickly, Lord, to help us –
Because we’ve shown
That we’re incapable
Of sorting out the mess we’ve made
