Thought for today

We pray for rain for our farmers and our gardens, for the whole of creation:

Creator God

We look in wonder at all you have made.

But remind us:

the earth does not belong to us;

we belong to the earth.

And remind us:

the earth and all that is in it belongs to you.

You confront us with such beauty and such power,

and such responsibility.

Teach us, O Creator God,

to respect this planet, our home,

to live carefully within the web of life,

and to give you the glory. Amen.
