The gift of life
We’re so thankful for the gift of life, the gift of creation and your tender care in every aspects of our lives, every day.
You have lovingly organised the heavens, the earth and all they contain in order to generously fulfil our needs and provide safety to your creation;
May you fill us with humility, wisdom and strength to administer our needs and wants so that - as heirs of the gift of life together with the whole of your creation – the privilege you have granted us to enjoy the offerings of your work stands in agreement with the responsibility you have given us to care for it, in accordance to your divine order.
May we grow in consciousness of the impact of our deeds, in time and space, on the infinitely small and the infinitely big in our day to day interactions with one another and with your creation.
May we not give in to fear of earthly uncertainties and their compulsion to amass earthly goods for ourselves but grow confident in your willingness and endless ability to protect us and generously provide for our every need while life shall last and, hence, grow in communion with you and in joy and happiness in sharing with one another.
We make this our humble prayer in the name of Jesus Christ,
By Moise Liboto Makuta, CAFOD’s Country Representative for Niger
