You Gifted This World

Heavenly God,
you gifted this world
and made us stewards of it,
gave us family from many lands
and ask us to care for them,
put your word upon our heart
and ask that we share it.

But we have thought only of ourselves
and the blessings of our lives,
forgetting that your grace
and love are for the benefit of all.

Forgive our selfishness,
enlarge our vision,
and enable us to be
the people we could be,
faithful servants
of our heavenly King.
