A Prayer For Knowledge of God's Creation

From The Book of Common Prayer


The Catholic Church recognizes the important role of using our God-given reason to try and figure out the world. Far from being opposed to science, the Church encourages us to explore the world, understanding that faith and reason are a part of the same truth. This prayer is perfect for teachers, classrooms, students, and even scientists.

Prayer For Knowledge of God's Creation
Almighty and everlasting God,
You made the universe
with all its marvelous order,
its atoms, worlds, and galaxies,
and the infinite complexity
of living creatures:
Grant that, as we probe
the mysteries of your creation,
we may come to know you more truly,
and more surely fulfill our role
in your eternal purpose;
in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Book Of Common Prayer, USA, 1979
