Thank you, Lord, for the growth you give us throughout life, starting in the womb.
At various stages of our journey as unborn children, our growth was especially rapid.
Lord, as we learn more about the growth of the body, we ask you to also give us continued growth in mind and spirit.
May we always care for our body, for it is your sacred creation.
May we always yearn to fill our mind with good thoughts and grow in knowledge and understanding.
And my we always thirst for a greater portion of your Holy Spirit, that we may grow in holiness.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
