Prayer For The Month (July)

Angel Window 15 Father God, we thank you for your beautiful world, help us to care for it’s beauty and be worthy stewards of all the good things that we see around us. Forgive us that we have taken your creation for granted, you have given us the run of the land and the pick of the crops, and we have squandered your resources. We are sorry Father, help us to care more and to share more that all may live in harmony. We ask in Jesus name, AMEN

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:1

The Lord sends out his spirit and renews the face of the earth.

The spirit of God come upon you and fill you with peace and love and guide you in all that you do.
