A Blessing for NASA

A prayer and blessing for the people of NASA

Dear God, our Father and Creator of the universe, please bless the people of NASA as they work toward their mission objectives of the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft. May they peacefully work in co-operation with each other as they seek truth and learn the awesomeness and laws of infinite space, energy, mass, and time.

Bless them to be successful in exploration of the asteroid and to enjoy the fruits of their labors on behalf of our world. Please bless NASA and its staff, suppliers, consultants, international collaborators, the people and taxpayers funding this project, and the Government of the USA.

May this spacecraft and its object asteroid be protected on this peaceful mission. Please keep the Earth safe from the harm of roving mass and energy in space.

May the digital messages and the creative artworks stored on this spacecraft demonstrate our peaceful intentions and be useful to those who will discover and read them in the millennia ahead. Then, may those discoverers better understand the people, cultures and beliefs of the current time, 2016 C.E.

Please bless them and us with love, peace, mercy, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

We ask all these blessings in the Name of Your Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ. Amen.

(Prayer by Ken Kozy, Huntley, Illinois, USA, 19 March 2016 C.E.)
