A prayer of the created

 

Father,

Take the mud and dirt of this life and breathe into it once again.

May my eyes open to the goodness of your creation, the grandeur of your power and the glory of your presence with me and in me.

May I, created in your image, see the work of your hands as the product of your loving creative self in this world and in myself.

May I embrace your creation and find in it my place with you.

May I cherish the life you have given to me. May I cherish the lives around me. Let me see your face in each of them and may I honor your image with each of them.

May I be a worthy steward of each breath, word and moment that you have given to me.

May I take time to rest in and with you.

Amen.
