20199月27崇基週會校牧禱文

我們的天父,我們感謝及讚美祢,祢所創造的宇宙萬物,實在彰顯了祢的榮美和大能,祢所創造的一切,在祢眼中都看為美好及寶貴。

 

感謝祢託付我們去管理海裏的魚、空中的鳥、地上各樣行動的活物,和全地。祢照著自己的形象創造人類,又指示我們去管理大地,求祢幫助我們去回應祢的呼召,教導我們去保護和滋養祢美麗的創造,把祢的形象彰顯於世上。

 

主耶穌啊,聖經教導我們,以基督耶穌的心為心,所以我們回應祢的呼召的時候,不可能以自我為中心,以致錯誤地運用祢所給予我們的恩賜與才能,去破壞祢所創造的天地海,對遠近的人和這個世界帶來傷害,這實在是過於沈重的代價。

 

聖靈啊,引導我們創造時空,去彼此相愛,也熱愛大地。這樣,我們就可以一起在上帝的憐憫和公義中與祂相遇。奉我主耶穌基督的名,阿們!

The Chaplain’s Prayer at College Assembly on 27 September, 2019

Our Heavenly Father, we give thanks to you and praise you.  The universe you created shows your beauty and mighty power.   For all of your creation which is good and precious in your eyes.

 

Thank you for your command to us to rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.  You created human in your own image, and gave us the instruction to rule over the earth.  Our Lord, please teach us how to respond to your call to protect and nourish your beautiful creation and to extend the image of God out into the world. 

 

Lord Jesus, as the Bible tells us, our attitude should be the same as that of Christ. Therefore, when we try to respond to your command cannot be centered in self, we cannot afford to misuse our talents and gifts.  To hurt the people far and near and to bring damage to your creation is indeed too costly.

 

Holy Spirit, guides us to create a space in time to love each other and love the earth that we will meet with God in His mercy and righteousness.  In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!
