Tearfund: Living Water Day 41

 

LIVING WATER: Hope for our planet

 

 

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good... (Genesis 1:31)

 

God created a world that was good and in it he placed the pinnacle of his creation us, human beings made in his image. We were designed to enjoy all the riches of relationship with God, with ourselves, with one another and with our planet. But the fall broke those relationships.

 

The brokenness and fragility of our relationships now contrast sharply with the creation story. But there is hope. We see glimpses of progress being made when we see the signing of a global agreement to tackle climate change or we begin to tap into alternative energy sources. Solar power could provide even the remotest places with affordable, clean energy, and light. That means children could do homework in the evenings, and clinics could run fridges and keep vaccines.

 

Prayer

Creator God, thank you that you are restoring relationships, including our relationship with our planet. Thank you that you give us creative ways to tackle the issues around us. Thank you that many nations have recognised their responsibility towards climate change and we pray that they will urgently implement policies to reduce emissions and help people adapt to the problem. Amen
