So very, very true. I know how I treasure certain things that have been said to me long after I'm sure the one who said them forgot them. (Unfortunately, this works w/both good and bad things...).

I've heard the words in the picture below many times, and they usually stay with me for all of 5 minutes or so. Maybe I should make a bunch of little notes and hang them around my house, in my work vehicle, etc., to see if I could do a little better than that!

Bless Thee, O Lord,
for the living arc of the sky over me this morning.

Bless Thee, O Lord,
for the companionship of night mist
far above the skyscraper peaks I saw
when I woke once during the night.

Bless Thee, O Lord,
for the miracle of light to my eyes
and the mystery of it ever changing.

Bless Thee, O Lord,
for the laws Thou hast ordained holding fast
these tall oblongs of stone and steel,
holding fast the planet Earth in its course
and farther beyond the circle of the Sun.

Lovely post and pic, Ann! Oddly enough, I read that very piece just a few days ago myself.

When you look for the good in others, you discover the good in yourself.

We pray for gentle rains,
and no wind;
we pray for cooling skies,
and water in abundance;
we pray for the burning land,
we pray for the four legged,
and the winged,
for the koala and the kangaroo,
and all of their neighbours;
we pray for the people who are trapped,
for the people who have lost their homes,
for the firefighters and the first responders,
for the exhausted and the tapped out,
we pray for Australia,
from east, to south, to west, to north,
and all the places in between.

In this world of changed and changing climate, God,
we ask that you would help us
to help those who are in immediate danger;
may we use what we have to help and to heal -
then call us to repent of all the ways
we continue to make this world
a place of death, rather than life.

Help us, O God... because we
don't seem to be able
to do it on our own.

In Christ's name,
on the wings of the Holy Spirit,
we pray.

Amen.

A prayer in response to the Australia wildfires by the Right Rev. Richard Bott.

Timely post, Ann. I will join you in praying for those in immediate peril as well as in the hope that it's not too late for us to fix what we've broken.
