A Prayer of Stewardship

Gracious and compassionate God, 
faithful to all your promises, 
supplier of our needs, 
may we never underestimate 
the value of all that you afford us; 
nor the usefulness of the endowments you give 
for the realization of your purposes. 
May we never so take for granted 
the gifts your bounteous grace provides 
as to become victims of the callousness 
that produces an abundance of waste. 
And save us, we ask you, from becoming 
purveyors of the careless and irresponsible disposal 
of the waste we produce.

( BWA General Secretary Emeritus Neville Callam, Jamaica )
