Lord, you have created…
Lord, you have created each one of us in your image, precious to you, of equal value.
And yet our world is not equal. For many people even basic things like food and water cannot be taken for granted.
May we be truly appreciative of all your gifts to us.
Forgive us when we have taken more than our share of the world’s resources, exploited others to fuel our own greed and turned a blind eye to situations of injustice.
Help us to find ways of redressing the balance, so that there may be a more equal sharing in the abundance of your creation and a more open awareness of the lives of others.
