Prayer For Knowledge of God's Creation
Almighty and everlasting God,
You made the universe with all its marvelous order,
its atoms, worlds, and galaxies,
and the infinite complexity of living creatures:
Grant that, as we probe the mysteries of your creation,
we may come to know you more truly,
and more surely fulfill our role in your eternal purpose;
in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
August 14, 2013
Pick up the "Getting to know you" sheet from the supply corner desk.
Fill it out completely using complete sentences
When finished turn it in to the "completed work" box on my front desk.
Lord bless us in all that we do, and bless those with whom we live and study. Grant us the gift of generosity so that we may respond to those in need. We offer this prayer in the name of Jesus your Son, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
