A Prayer For Australia

Lord Of All,

Creator of Australia,

We bring our gratitude

for the diversity and wealth of this land and its people;

for its weathered old mountains,

fertile valleys, and vast plains,

for its riches of soil, forest,

land, fruit and food,

for the first Australians, who know and love this land deeply,

for the diverse people who now call Australia home,

for those who flee famine and war to seek refuge among us,

for these and all your gifts we offer you, O Lord,

our joyful, thankful hearts.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.
