Prayer

Mess

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).


Lord,
We’re ruining
Your world –

With our inequality,
Poverty,
And riches;

Our prejudice,
Intolerance,
And hatred;

Our wars,
Torture,
And refugees;

Our pollution,
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
Without you.
