Gracious and loving God, you are the giver of life. Thank you for giving us life. May we respect and value life. May we honor the gift. May we use it only to glorify you. I praise you in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” (Psalm 139:14 ESV)
