Prayer

Dust to dust

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

There is one Lord …who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

Then the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground (Genesis 2:7; NLT).

“For you were made from dust, and to dust you will return” (Genesis 3:19; NLT).

For then the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NLT).

Jesus knew …that he had come from God and was returning to God (John 13:3; NIV).


Father,
You create the earth,
And everything in it.

You are over all,
And in all,
And you live through all.

You create us
From the dust
Of the ground.

You are over us,
And in us,
And you live through us.

When we die, our bones
Return to the earth
We came from,

But our souls
Return to you –
The God who gave them.
