Prayer for October 25: Please pray with me. God who rules the earth, help us to see that we are not in charge. You call on us to be stewards of your creation. But being a steward is not the same as owning the place. You call on us to care for creation. But how does that happen when we seem more concerned with extracting every last drop of resources out of the earth for a profit? Empty our thirst and desire to exploit the earth for our own convenience without thinking about the consequences. Turn us to be considerate caretakers of your creation so that future generations may also enjoy your creation. Amen.
