21 Days of Prayer – Day 9
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
Think about what it’s like to bring an art project home from school —
something you’ve worked hard to make, all by yourself. You’ve poured
your own unique creativity and skills into designing your masterpiece.
How would you feel if you brought it home, hung it in the middle of
the living room, and then watched as everyone completely ignored it?

incredible that you made. Let us never lose our sense of wonder at your
creative power. Amen.
Take a walk in God’s nature today (if it’s raining ask Mum/Dad if you can look at some nature photos or watch a video about nature). While out for a walk take a photo or draw something that catches your eye. Thank God for creating it and praise him for it.
