Creator God, children that live in the Diaspora or displaced in their homeland, replace their impoverished spirit with the wholeness that was breathed in them in the beginning.
God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle, And, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.” God created human beings; he created them godlike, Reflecting God’s nature. He created them male and female. God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge! Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.”
Then God said, “I’ve given you every sort of seed-bearing plant on Earth And every kind of fruit-bearing tree, given them to you for food. To all animals and all birds, everything that moves and breathes, I give whatever grows out of the ground for food.” And there it was.
God looked over everything he had made; it was so good, so very good! It was evening, it was morning—
Help them to see and act upon the permanent means You have given them to stave off the enemy's attack of lies and mind bending corruption. Restore and replenish what is being stolen from them.
