Opening Prayer of Thanksgiving: Psalm 65

Here’s a responsive opening prayer of thanksgiving from the Arthur Rank Centre.

Opening Prayer
(Inspired by Psalm 65)

God of life and love
We rejoice in your abundant gifts
God of all peoples and all places
We celebrate your generosity and grace
God of the earth and the heavens
We praise you for your provision
You visit the earth and water it
Softening it with showers and blessing its growth
You make springs gush forth in the valleys
From your lofty abode you water the mountains
God of life and love
We bless your holy name
