A Prayer for Giving
Creator God, we thank you for every perfect gift is from you, for you are the source of life, and the mystery of all forms of life. Open our hearts and our minds to welcome one another, even as you welcome and receive us. We thank you for calling us to be stewards of creation, help us to realize our “response-ability” in sharing, sustaining, and restoring your precious life-giving gifts. Grant us the grace to be open hearted and love you and your creation with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength. O God our mother, embrace us with your love and give us the courage and generosity to respond to your love. We offer this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
