Before you begin, pause for a moment. Take several deep breaths and allow yourself to grow still. Be aware of God's loving presence within you.
1 Corinthians 3:9
For we are God's co-workers; you are God's field, God's building.
From the very beginning of the Book of Genesis, we are called to be stewards of God's creation. In fact, we are more than stewards. St. Paul reminds us that we are cocreators with God. Each of us has been gifted to participate in God's work of creation in our own unique way. God's creative work continues with our cooperation, in the fields of our everyday lives.
In what ways do I contribute to God's ongoing creative process?
In what way could I grow to better serve God's creation?
(Speak to God, using the words of this prayer or a prayer of your own.)
God of all creation, the world is full of the wonder of your work. May my choices reflect reverence for all that lives and breathes and has its being in our midst.
