POINTS TO PONDER (P2P): A MAASAI PRAYER

"Father-Mother Earth,

We pray thee at sunrise and sunset, that you may not abandon your sacred duty of sustaining our lives. The water that quenches our thirst, the air that we breathe, the trees that provide shade, and the animals that give us company, all make life real and creation complete.


We the children of the Earth pray for wisdom, that we in turn may be good custodians of these precious gifts to us and our unborn generations.

For if we fail to safeguard these resources, man's moral standing as the most intelligent animal will be questionable.

Furthermore, if we fail Nature, we shall have failed ourselves and the generations that come after us.

And judgment will be very harsh on us."
