What are humans that you are mindful of them, mere mortals that you care for them? Yet you have made them little less than a god, crowned them with glory and honor. You have given them rule over the works of your hands, put all things at their feet.
(Pray, using these words or words of your own.)
God, Creator of all, thank you for trusting us to care for creation. Help me to see beyond my own doorstep and to recognize the ways that I can serve the larger community and be a good steward of your creation.
