Cycle of Prayer

Space and Scientists

Lord, we praise you for the mystery of creation. We stand in awe before the vast expanse of space that contains so many answers and so many more questions. Help us, the quarrelsome and self-centered people you have chosen for yourself, to restrain ourselves from expanding our quarrels into space. Help us not to pollute another part of the creation but in the process of asking and answering questions, to respect the integrity of all that is. We bless you for scientists of all kinds who help us to push the borders of the knowledge of the world you created and love. Help us in our turn to find through that knowledge your wisdom for the sake of your people. We pray through Jesus Christ. Amen.
