We thank you for creating this wonderful world,
For the gifts and abilities you’ve given each of us,
And the opportunity we have to learn and to grow.
Please work through the power of your Spirit,
Developing in us the Christian values shown perfectly in your Son, Jesus Christ.
Make us enterprising in all we do,
Moulding us into people of character who will make a positive contribution to society.
Give us attentive ears to listen, willing hearts to learn, and ready wills to obey.
And show us more of the truth about your glorious Son: his life, death, resurrection, reign and relevance.
In his name we pray,
