Prayer for the Week

Father and maker of all,

you adorn all creation

with splendor and beauty,

and fashion human lives

in your image and likeness.

Awaken in every heart

reverence for the work of your hands,

and renew among your people

a readiness to nurture and sustain

your precious gift of life.


Grant this through our Lord

Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in

the unity of the Holy Spirit,

God, for ever and ever.
