It reaches out to the ends of creation
Creation of land, sea, and sky
Look for His Hand in the beauty, clouds, rain, storm, wind, and snow.
He is there to provide each and every need, and for disaster.
His all-embrace covers the whole world.
His touch encounters the poor, the hungry, the disadvantaged,
The earth, erosion, the war-torn countries, the flood victims,
The victims of abuse, abduction, trafficking.
God’s touch and love often are ignored in such instances.
Let’s return to prayer, faith, hope and love for God and fellow Mankind.
We pray for peace, freedom, an appreciation for creation,
A renewal of a Trinitarian center where God always dwells.
Give us His eyes, His ears, His speech as we reach out to all.
We humbly thank God’s loving touch in our lives and that of neighbors near and far.
We pray for all the offenders who don’t acknowledge You and hurt so many.
