Praying for Creation

 “Creator God,
Bless the tear we shed
for the resources that we have squandered. 
Bless the sigh we breathe out
for the spoilt air and atmosphere. 
Bless the head we hang
for the creatures lost and exploited.
Bless the hands we wring
for the things we have broken and wasted. 
Bless us as we lament.
Cradle us as we regret.
Restore us as we start afresh.”
--John Polhill In 'A Heart for Creation'
