Should We Pray For Climate Change?
Consider a simple experiment kick a sliver spoon, tell me would it be logical enough to ask me why it moved ? Or would it be considered wise to pray that the spoon moves back to its original position ?
Life operates under certain principals and laws that freely exist with logic and thought ,the law of eventuality answers a lot of life's questions which are in no way philosophic but rather pure logic reasoning that an average mind could easily understand.
From the above stated experiment of kicking a sliver spoon even a 5 year old boy would rightly agree that the spoon moved cause of the external force applied on its body which caused about it's change in place through distance , and the only best possible way of getting the silver spoon back is lifting it back to its original position or kicking it back .
Now here's what am driving towards ,if the above concept of understanding that what comes is determined by what is done now , the world would be a better place.Why should we plant oranges and pray for apples ? God isn't a magician his work through science and reasoning speaks highly of things being Independent. Take gravity for example , its possible for someone to fail from a tree at church meanwhile gravity was created by God ,this indicates two things ,God let's gravity operates freely and expects people to be careful and responsible .mind you, we won't put in consideration the flip side of a mistake ,cause climate change, pollution etc are in no degree a human mistake . so should we pray for rains ,when the plastics and carbons emissions from cars and industries where made by us ?
Should God take action cause of our own irresponsibility of taking care of the environment when we can even do something about it ?
Should we pray for rains ?
This is a funny question ,my answer is No ,if you ask why ,it's like telling me to pray for the spoon in our above scenario to get back to it's original position ,now let's think critically God solved a lot of problems when he gave us the mind ,God only comes in when the limit of our thoughts is stretched Jesus raised Lazarus that was the last point where an ordinary man's power and thought couldn't take no action .
During my training at MOGI our provost said
"Some problems are not prayer problems they are strategic problems - Mike Oladipo
The wisdom around the quote is that its not everything that you should pray about
And down the echoes of my memory, I do remember my high school friend told me,
"Prayer doesn't Change the world it changes you to change the world "
Its sad that ,so much do we want change and don't want to change ourselves ,thank you to all those we fasted and prayed for the rains but if you didn't plant any tree my brother and sister ,your prayer is pointless God works with people who work , Noah's ark never created its self.
If we learn to wear the garments of responsibility and start to reason that the world today is only a product of our greed ,power ,technology and advance ignorance ,then can we change ,so let's not pray about it ,let's work , meetings of discussions or protest on climate change are a bit useless let's just go out there and plant trees !
Prayer can't pray the role of Trees , in no way am I saying prayer is bad or not needed ,but God won't answer cause he expects us to work and use the natural resources he gave us carefully, so let's not pray for rains let's pray that we have wisdom and use our minds properly
Global warming ,pollution and climatic change are not demonic but rather an impact of humans careless thirsty for dormancy and blind civilisation
Surely to dust we return
The world today is only a catalyst to make us die faster
So don't pray for rains ,go plant trees and stop wasting your time.”
And let's not destroy our only home by taking good care of our environment, let's reserve and do away with the plastics on the land, chemicals(smoke) in the atmosphere and that bad being in ourselves, then get ready to see a very beautiful place we've never seen before.
