Our Father who art in Heaven,
What an unspeakable honor and responsibility it is that You, dear, Lord, have entrusted us to steward a world that You so creatively and lovingly brought into existence. And regardless of whether we broadly or meticulously examine the genius of how the earth and mankind have been created we cannot help but be moved by the perfect, symbiotic relationship that enables both man and nature to live in harmony with one another.One of the simplest examples of our symbiotic relationship in that what we exhale (carbon dioxide) as waste actually is what nature requires to grow and thrive and what the plant world “exhales” (oxygen) as waste actually is what mankind needs to grow and thrive.
You have charged us to both carefully manage and respectfully care for all that You placed on and in the earth, for our benefit and for Your glory. Lord, help us be good and faithful stewards of the earth for our benefit and your ultimate glory is my prayer in Jesus name Amen.
