God of abundance, thank you for the abundance on earth,
thank you that nature points to your glorious generosity;
the hundreds and thousands of leaves on a tree,
the blossoms that drip off a branch in all their splendour,
insects that buzz about, filling the air with their dance,
bees that dart about bringing life on their wings,
birds that lavish their song on all with ears to hear.
God of abundance,
thank you for the abundance of your love –
a love that holds us all in life,
a love that encompasses all we do,
a love that allows us to thrive in all things.
Prayer by Reverend Nadene Snyman (from ‘Conversations’ the URC Prayer handbook for 2021)
