Gracious God, this morning we come to You with praise and thanksgiving for the wonderful world You have created. You have given us all that we need to sustain life, and yet sadly, as issues over single use plastics enters our news forums again, we acknowledge that there are many ways in which we fail to be good stewards of your Earth. Please help each of us to continue to learn how to reduce our carbon footprint. In a world of disposable goods, help us to use resources wisely and prudently as we focus on the sustainability of resources for all people.You have gifted humankind a truly beautiful and awesome home. And so help us to take seriously our guardianship of the gifts You have bestowed upon us. May our call to be stewards govern and guide our daily living. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
