Prayer for the Second Meeting

Second Meeting

Father, please bless our time together as we share our prayer experience over the past week. May we come to a deeper understanding of the wonder of your Creation and the role that we as human beings are called to play in the preservation of our natural world.
We praise you, we bless you, we reverence you and we stand in awe before you, Almighty Father. We thank you for the gift of life; for the many gifts of Creation which nourish our bodies and souls; and for the trust you have placed in us by making us stewards of our natural world.
Help us, Father, to savour the beauty and fruits of the earth without being unduly attached to the things we most enjoy or to worldly possessions.
May we never serve you or others with mediocrity, but strive always to fulfill the plan you had for us at the moment of our conception.
All this we ask through your Son, Jesus. Amen.
