Prayer for the week

Living God,

Creator of the largest oaks and the tiniest seeds,

You watch over us in our waking and sleeping.

You teach us in our living and loving.

Like trees with roots in rich soil,

Help us to grow in deep, engaged faith;

Like seeds carried on the wind,

Help us to spread your nourishing, refreshing faith;

So all may experience justice and joy

Throughout this earth.
