Thank you for our wonderfully complex bodies that you have knit together.
Our bodies do amazing things – some of which we don’t talk about.
But, Lord, those unmentionables require a clean and safe place to happen – and some of our friends around the world are lacking.
We thank you, God, for the engineers, development workers, and ditch diggers who are constructing safe and sanitary toilets or latrines around the world.
For the 4.2 billion people who live without safely managed sanitation, we pray for creative and resourceful sanitation workers to devise and implement culturally appropriate toilets.
Lord, give us this day our daily bread – and our daily sanitary facilities – that we may be healthy, and able to serve you and our neighbours.
