Prayer for the Beauty of the Earth

We give you thanks, most gracious God, for the beauty of earth and sky and sea; for the richness of mountains, plains, and rivers; for the songs of birds and the loveliness of flowers. We praise you for these good gifts, beseeching you that we may safeguard them for our posterity. Grant that we may continue to grow in our grateful enjoyment of your abundant creation, to the honor and glory of your Name, now and for ever. Amen.

Psalm 100

Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands; *

serve the Lord with gladness
and come before his presence with a song.
Know this: The Lord himself is God; *

he himself has made us, and we are his;
we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise; *

give thanks to him and call upon his Name.
For the Lord is good;
his mercy is everlasting; *

and his faithfulness endures from age to age.
