Prayers: “A Thanksgiving Prayer

Eternal God, source of all created things, we would give substance to our thankfulness by resolving to make right use of the gifts we have received from thy bounty.

With thy gift of the senses we would fashion and preserve a world of beauty for all. With thy gift of reason we would engage in a responsible search for truth. With thy gift of compassion we would build a world of justice and mercy. And with thy gift of being we would walk together in peace.

Thus, in gratitude, may we become faithful servants of thy glorious ongoing creation. Amen.
