Before you begin, take time to settle yourself by focusing on your breathing.

Blessed Lord, you created the world and are always doing new things in the world that bring about life.  We give thanks for your life-giving work and for the many ways you are creatively at work through your children, slowly but surely making the world a more loving and beautiful place.  Help us not to be afraid to be creative and innovative in serving you and our neighbors.  May we embrace the talents and ideas you have given us and run with them, led by your Holy Spirit!  In Jesus’ name, AMEN.

Close with the Lord’s Prayer, pausing between each word.

This prayer was inspired by this story.
