When You finished Your creative work, You declared, “It is very good.” Before mankind decided we could make our own rules, it was perfect and without any kind of blemish.
Since we took control, the earth has been transformed from perfection to chaos.
Father, we are lost, blinded and confused. There is no escape from the desperate situation our rebellion and stubborn refusal to acknowledge Your lordship has created.
My spirit is crushed as I learn more of the depths of depravity the “wisdom” of mankind is capable of reaching.
How desperate is our need? How scant our recognition of our failures? Reveal Yourself mighty in our daily lives. Shine Your light into the depths of our darkness.
Empower me…I want to be part of the solution but I’m helpless without You.
Scripture: “The LORD saw how bad the people on earth were and that everything they thought and planned was evil.” Genesis 6:5
