A reflection on litter

Reflections for the day

Revelation 4:11

“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”

“Time spent in prayer will yield more than that given to work. Prayer alone gives work its worth and its success. Prayer opens the way for God Himself to do His work in us and through us. Let our chief work as God’s messengers be intercession; in it we secure the presence and power of God to go with us.”

Andrew Murray


A reflection on litter

Heavenly Father,

Thou art almighty, thou art most powerful, and thou art creator of the world and all that is in it. Thou instructed us to be keepers of thou world we live in, to have dominion over all things, and to subdue thou earth.

Heavenly Father, thou gave us thou world for safe keeping and there are many of us who are happy with the way things are but there are some of us who believe we have fallen short in keeping thou world in the way that thou created thou world.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see that the future of Mankind is one that can be described as bleak unless we change our ways. We are able to see that much of what hath happened in thou world could have been prevented, and much of what is likely to happen in thou world can be prevented.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we desire for Man to reflect carefully upon the nature of litter. We acknowledge that many of us are careful about the way in which we dispose of our litter. We are able to see that some of us are less careful than others in the way in which litter is disposed of. We are able to see that much of our litter is collected and disposed of by others, and we are able to see that some of our litter is not collected and disposed of, and that some of this litter that is not collected and disposed of is often blown by thou wind into thou streams, and is often blown by thou wind into thou rivers, and is often blown by thou wind into thou oceans.

We acknowledge that the process known as biodegrading is one that takes many years to complete, and we acknowledge that the process known as biodegrading is one where there are chemicals released and the chemicals that are released are described as toxic, and these chemicals are ones that are leaked into thou soil, and these chemicals are ones that are leaked into thou streams, and these chemicals are ones that are leaked into thou rivers, and these chemicals are ones that are leaked into thou oceans.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge that the presence of litter in thou environment is one that provides a hazard, and this hazard is one to thou wildlife, and we acknowledge that there is a hazard to the health of Man, and this hazard is one that is described as potential, and this hazard that is described as potential is one that is due to the release of chemicals.

Heavenly Father, we hope and we pray that Man will turn to thou and say sorry for the error of a way, and we hope and we pray that Man will make the changes in a life that are necessary, and we hope and we pray that Man will turn to thou, always.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to place opportunities before many to reflect carefully upon the need to make changes in a life, and the changes that are necessary are ones that relate to the disposal of litter, and we hope and we pray that Man will see the need to dispose of litter in a way that is described as fitting.

Heavenly Father, all things are possible through thou if we place a faith and if we place a  trust in thou to help Mankind to decide how to resolve these issues, and to help Man to see clearly the contribution he or she has made to this situation.

Heavenly Father, we uphold these words to thou now in thou name of thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us to save us from all our sin and to show us thou way to thou, and in thou name of thou Holy Spirit, who lives amongst us, who dwells amongst us and who advocates for us, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    Our countryside is beautiful, especially this time of the year when flowers blossom, trees and shrubs come into leaf and young animals roam the land. It can be devastated by people dumping unwanted litter and plastic bags being eaten by wild animals. Why is it that the public does not take pride in their surroundings and worship nature as provided by our Father? Amen
