Prayer for Genesis 1:28

Praying through Genesis 1:28

Heavenly Father, what a beautiful reminder that it was Your perfect plan for mankind to look after the earth, have dominion over it, and be fruitful and multiply. In these days when it seems people are worshipping Your creation, with calls to protect the planet and worries about global climate problems, people have forgotten the Creator. May I be a good steward of this planet, because I love You Who created it and I because I want to honour You. Thank You that this sinful world is passing away, to one day be replaced with a new heaven and new earth. Creation declares the glory of God. May I sing with creation to Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
