A simple prayer is all it takes to connect with God every day. And if you don’t know how to pray, no worries! We’ve got you covered. Check out this simple prayer below to get started! 


Trees in the Bible

Trees are more alive and amazing than we could ever imagine! Mother Beech trees protect their younglings. Families of trees share nutrients through their roots and keep each other alive. Messages are sent via roots or scents from one tree to other trees to warn them of bug attacks. Maybe Isaiah’s idea of the trees clapping their hands in worship isn’t as far-fetched as we may think (Isaiah 55:12)! 

In the Scriptures, the story of trees tells the story of the Bible. The first big mistake happened when two folks named Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 3:6). But then the first rescue happened, when God protected them from eating also of the tree of life (3:22). Later, the Bible describes those who stay planted in God’s ways, as those who are like trees planted by streams of water (Psalm 1). Christians see the Cross as a metaphorical tree of life— where Jesus laid down his life to save us from sin and death. And then the story of the Bible ends in Revelation with God’s invitation to eat from the Tree of Life (Revelation 2:7). 

So basically, whenever you see a tree, it’s a beautiful reminder of God’s love and rescue! 

That’s why we decided to make a prayer for the trees. It’s not only about caring for Creation, although we’re big fans of that too, it’s also about protecting these monuments to the goodness and love of God.  

“Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God” (Revelation 2:7).

A Prayer for the Trees

Arborist-God, Tree-planter, Forester, you created trees to provide shelter and food, and as monuments of your love and beauty. Thank you for the trees. Help us to be good stewards of these ancient giants. Help us pause to enjoy the way they look, feel, and smell. And, when they sway in the wind, may we join them in clapping our hands to worship you. Amen.
