Morning Collect for Knowledge of God's Creation

Almighty and everlasting God, you made the universe with
all its marvelous order, its atoms, worlds, and galaxies, and
the infinite complexity of living creatures: Grant that, as we
probe the mysteries of your creation, we may come to know
you more truly, and more surely fulfill our role in your
eternal purpose; in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

It is wonderful to realize that the Book of Common Prayer proclaims so clearly that there is indeed no conflict between science and religion. Both worship the beauty of God's creation in different ways.
Indeed. I love how this prayer invites us to use science as a lens through which we marvel at God's vision and creative/generative power and yet remain mystery.
