  3. This prayer before the Senate of Tennessee was a prophetic witness that God’s creation is entrusted to us and a reminder of the great responsibility we have to faithfully care for all that God has given us. I hope that the Senate heard well these words of encouragement, that their hearts were transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit, and that they blocked legislation that would lead to the marring of the beauty of Tennessee.
