A Prayer for Stewardship of Creation

O merciful Creator, your hand is open wide to satisfy the needs of every living creature: Make us, we pray, ever thankful for your loving providence; and grant that we, remembering the account that we must one day give, may be faithful stewards of your good gifts; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Psalm 148

  Hallelujah! Praise the LORD from the heavens; *
praise him in the heights.
  Praise him, all you angels of his; *
praise him, all his host.
  Praise him, sun and moon; *
praise him, all you shining stars.
  Praise him, heaven of heavens, *
and you waters above the heavens.
  Let them praise the Name of the LORD; *
for he commanded, and they were created.
  He made them stand fast for ever and ever; *
he gave them a law which shall not pass away.
  Praise the LORD from the earth, *
you sea-monsters and all deeps;
  Fire and hail, snow and fog, *
tempestuous wind, doing his will;
  Mountains and all hills, *
fruit trees and all cedars;
10   Wild beasts and all cattle, *
creeping things and wingèd birds;
11   Kings of the earth and all peoples, *
princes and all rulers of the world;
12   Young men and maidens, *
old and young together.
13   Let them praise the Name of the LORD, *
for his Name only is exalted, his splendor is over earth and heaven.
14   He has raised up strength for his people and praise for all his loyal servants, *
the children of Israel, a people who are near him. Hallelujah!
