Psalm 36:6-7 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your judgments are like the great deep; you save humans and animals alike, O Lord. How precious is your steadfast love, O God! All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
God we ask that you will guard our cities from great harm. How grateful we are for the care you have for every living thing! Help us to value life in all its many forms and to see your creativity in the work of your loving hands. May we be as simple and pure hearted as children, taking refuge in you as a child might run to a loving parent for protection. May the people of our cities, towns and villages, those among whom we live and move, experience your kindness and truly know how precious it is to be beloved of God. Amen
