Prompts to Help You Pray

Learn more in our Dawn Treader Magazine

This prayer, thanking God for His Creation and asking for wisdom to use it well, can be said at any time of the day—any time when something wonderful in God’s world reminds us to turn and tell Him how wonderful He is!


Dear God,
You are the fount of all blessings,
source of all life,
and giver of all grace:

We thank You for the gift of life:
for air, food, and water;
for the love of family and friends;
for all the things without which
we couldn’t continue to live.

We thank You for the mystery of creation:
for the beauty that the eye can see,
for the marvels that the ear can hear,
for all the amazing mysteries that fill
the universe with wonder.

Help us to grow in knowledge and
appreciation of Your Creation,
To be good stewards of what You have given us,
And to always remember that every good gift
comes only from You.

We thank You for this day and for our life.
We thank You that You are our God, our Creator,
and our Savior.

For these, and all blessings,
we give You thanks, eternal, loving God,
through Jesus Christ we pray.
