Light a Candle to begin your prayer:
Almighty God open my mind and heart to your word as I read of your love for me in creation Amen
‘The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works,
before his deeds of old;
I was formed long ages ago,
at the very beginning, when the world came to be.
When there were no watery depths, I was given birth,
when there were no springs overflowing with water;
before the mountains were settled in place,
before the hills, I was given birth,
before he made the world or its fields
or any of the dust of the earth.
I was there when he set the heavens in place,
when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
when he established the clouds above
and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
when he gave the sea its boundary
so that the waters would not overstep his command,
and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
Then I was constantly[e] at his side.
I was filled with delight day after day,
rejoicing always in his presence,
rejoicing in his whole world
and delighting in the human race
Reflection on Bible Reading:
This reading again is a piece of poetry. It speaks of the creation of Wisdom. When it begins; “The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works, before his deeds of old”. It is speaking of wisdom the laws of the universe that are created in the moment of the big bang. It is from this divine law of order that all life springs forth.
Pray this prayer aloud:
By the word of our Lord the heavens were made
By the spirit of our Lord was life begun
By the wisdom of our Lord his laws were laid
By the love of our Lord was born his Son
By the grace of our Lord mankind was saved
By the power of our Lord the victory was won Amen
