Creation family prayer resources
We are part of the intricate web of Creation. We care for the things God has made, and we also notice how God cares for us through these same things. We are challenged to delight in the natural world and consider our responsibility to nurture and protect it.
Use these ideas to inspire your family prayer time around the wonders of God's creation.
Seeds of peace
Gather some small pots, potting compost and seeds - sunflowers, lettuce, radish and cress are all good easy to grow choices.
Reflect together on the power of a seed. A tiny seed, if given water and light, can move soil many, many times its own weight. We should never underestimate the power of a seed.
One of Jesus' followers, James, wrote: "Those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of goodness." (James 3:18)
Those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of goodness.
Think together about some of the situations in the world where God's peace is needed.
Think about, and thank God for, those people who bring peace.
Then plant your seeds as a prayer for peace and a commitment to allowing the goodness of your lives to grow.
