lifeCreator God,
We place our life in your hands.
Out of the dirt your formed us,
Before we were born you had plans for us.
Plans to prosper us, for a future, for hope.

As your children instill a deep respect in us for creation.
Allow us to care for all aspects of the world you made.
May our living and our dying be a reflection of your will,
That we might know your love and live in your grace.

Watch over those who know hardship and struggle.
Protect those were are vulnerable to the elements.
May each of us do our part to see that all are protected and sheltered.

We place our lives in your keeping,
Trusting in your tender mercies,
Living in the grace received through Christ,
Loving all as you have taught us. Amen.
