Prayer: Recreate the World

Here’s a prayer of petition inspired by Psalm 104:30. It was written by Kieran O’Brien.

Recreate the World

“When you send forth Your Spirit, they are created;
and you renew the face of the earth.”
Psalm 104:30

Creator God,

Because of your abundant love
you chose to bring light and order into the formless void,
to create a world of unsurpassed beauty
and you saw that it was good.

We ask that you continue to recreate the world
with that same attentive love,
to bring light into today’s ever increasing chaos and darkness
where we have failed to be stewards and care-ers of your creation.

Replenish our hearts
so that we too can renew the face of the earth.
