Living the Lord’s Prayer for our Planet

Living the Lord’s Prayer for our Planet

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

I would like to use this lovely rendition of The Lord’s Prayer as a prelude.

Living this prayer FOR OUR PLANET:

  For the past couple of months (written years ago), I have frequently driven to a nearby location where I can view the sunset.  Awe-inspiring … breathtaking … beautiful beyond words … are feeble attempts at describing the loveliness displayed.  Looking up, the sky becomes God’s cathedral enfolding our planet … the indigo, white, rose pink, and gray clouds are transformed into heavenly stained glass windows, shimmering in the light of the Sun.  Looking up, I am aware of our planet nestled within a universe of planets, stars, and Suns.  Looking up, I pray the Lord’s Prayer for our planet.

            On the other hand, I observe drivers speeding past a lovely sunset … people walking along the roadside … church members parking their cars nearby and going inside … few, if any, look up long enough to behold the heavenly vision surrounding them.  All are engrossed in the tasks at hand … tasks that seem, to us, to be vital to our earth plane lives.  Yet, these very tasks tend to separate us from the much more comprehensive drama of God’s unfolding plan for our planet.  They cause us to look down … to forget that our lives are taking place on a planet … within a solar system … within a galaxy … within a cosmos.
