An Ethiopian prayer

You have created all creatures
with your word.
You carry them all
without being weary.
You feed them all
without ceasing.
You think about them all
without forgetting any.
You give to all
without being diminished.
You water all the earth
without running dry.

From the liturgy of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

Christian Aid supports development projects run by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church to bring clean water and better farming methods to rural communities.
