Lord of all Wisdom,
We thank you for your Word, Jesus Christ.
Illumine our minds and bodies
by that Word
so that we might see every part of your creation
as a reflection of your glory.
In particular help us not miss
the small and contingent rocks, plants and animals
in which children so delight.
Make us children,
so that we might enjoy the sheer giftedness of your creation. Amen.
