Prayer of Invocation: Psalm 8

Here’s a prayer of invocation inspired by Psalm 8.  It comes from the LiturgyLink website.

Opening Prayer of Invocation
(inspired by Psalm 8)

Sovereign God,
we look at the things You have made,
the works of Your hands,
and we stop to consider them with awe.
From the intricate immensity of the universe
to the specific singularity of a flower,
Your works astonish us.
Who are we mortals that You pay attention to us?
We wonder at your love for us and rejoice in your presence,
praying in the name of the Creator,
the Christ and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
