The heavens are yours; the earth also is yours; the world and all that is in it, you have founded them.
Time of Gratitude
“Give thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Eph. 5:20).

Praying the Lord’s Prayer: “Give us this day our daily bread”
God, you have always provided for us in the past. Your faithfulness has been tested and found true at each turn. We are a faithless, forgetful people, but you are an utterly faithful, always remembering God who cares for us. Thank you that as you have always provided, you will continue to do so. We trust you for the needs of THIS day. We thank you that you are even now providing what is required. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Need in the World to be Restored: The Environment
God, heal this broken earth. We confess that as stewards of the creation you made for us, we have not always done what was good and right to care for your world around us. We confess that in this way, as in many ways, our love of self has outweighed your ordering of things. Help us see how to engage the critical conversation of how to be responsible cultivators of our Father’s World.
