Morning Collect for Stewardship of Creation

O merciful Creator,
your hand is open wide to satisfy the needs
of every living creature:
Make us always thankful for your loving providence;
and grant that we, remembering the account that we must one day give,
may be faithful stewards of your good gifts;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns,
one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

(BCP 259)
