Prayer Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11

God who stretched the Spangled Heavens,
this past week of remembering and reliving the Apollo 11 Moon landing
has not only jogged the memories of older adults
but excited the imagination and wanderlust of all humanity.
You showed Abraham and Sara the stars
     and said their descendants would be more numerous.
We gaze out at the night sky
     and marvel at the mystery and lure
     of your ever-expanding universe.
As we dream of and plan for travelling back to the moon,
     to Mars,
     and beyond,
help also to recapture the vision of peace for all humankind.
