Prayed in church today:
Oh merciful Creator, our waters are bleeding through the work of our hands and our consumptive appetites. We are mindful of the infinite complexity of your world and the limits of our knowledge and skill. Send your Spirit of healing, wisdom, and comfort upon those who are affected by this tragedy and those who seek to make right this awful wrong. May we, remembering the account that we must one day give, be strengthened to be more faithful stewards of your bounty.
