Prayer

Desecration

He created the earth and everything in it (Isaiah 42:5; NLT).

So God created human beings in his own image (Genesis 1:27; NLT).

…those who do evil prove that they do not know God (3 John 1:11; NLT).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NLT).


Father,
You create the earth,
And all that’s in it,
Including humankind.

Everything we make
Relies entirely
On the natural resources
You provide.

Yet we desecrate your precious gifts,
Using them to fashion
Instruments of war
That maim and kill.

Lord,
When we do evil,
We prove we don’t know you
At all –
For you are love.
