Creator God, you are the author and sustainer of the universe. Every cell in my body is held together by your word. Increase my faith as I am reminded of your sustaining power. As I see you provide for all your creatures may I grow in faith that you will provide for all my needs. May I follow the words of Jesus and consider the provision of food for the birds and of beauty for the flowers, letting creation fuel my faith. May I trust in your providence throughout my life. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
