A prayer to mark 50 years since the moon landing

The Church of England is marking the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing with the publication of a special prayer, as events take place around the world to celebrate the event.

The prayer, which is being shared on social media, speaks of man’s drive to “explore the mysteries of creation” and the need to cherish our world.

O God, 
who made the universe and all that is in it
we thank you for the skills and talents
that enable us to explore the mysteries of creation. 
Give us the will to cherish all that you have made, 
and to use the riches of our own world
for the good of all, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord
