Prayer for Joy in God’s Creation

O heavenly Father, you have filled the world with beauty: Open our eyes to behold your gracious hand in all your works; that, rejoicing in your whole creation, we may learn to serve you with gladness; for the sake of him through whom all things were made, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Psalm 54

Save me, O God, by your Name; *

in your might, defend my cause.
Hear my prayer, O God; *

give ear to the words of my mouth.
For the arrogant have risen up against me,
and the ruthless have sought my life, *

those who have no regard for God.
Behold, God is my helper; *

it is the Lord who sustains my life.
Render evil to those who spy on me; *

in your faithfulness, destroy them.
I will offer you a freewill sacrifice *

and praise your Name, O Lord, for it is good.
For you have rescued me from every trouble, *

and my eye has seen the ruin of my foes.
