You declare your glory and show forth your handiwork

Season of Creation

Almighty God our heavenly Father, you declare your glory and show forth your handiwork in the heavens and in the earth; Deliver us in our various occupations from the service of self alone, that we may do the work you give us to do in truth and beauty and for the common good; for the sake of him who came among us as one who serves, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Stars Declare God’s Glory

Creating God, by your eternal Word, you said, “Let there be light,” and the entire cosmos exploded into being; help us gauge the vastness of your universe, from the subatomic to the transgalactic; and give us grace to know ourselves loved by such a creator in Jesus Christ, who with the Father and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, world without end. Amen.

The Seas and All That is in Them

O God, at creation your Spirit hovered over the ancient deep in which all life was born. In the waters of baptism we are recreated as your children. Bless all oceans and waters; Let your Spirit come and renew the face of the earth. Save us from selfish use of what you have given so that men and women everywhere may give you thanks, through the Eternal Word spoken eternally by God, whose Spirit fills all things and makes us whole. Amen.

This Fragile Earth, Our Island Home

O God, the ground of being, who formed us and all living creatures from carbon dust, into which you breathed your Spirit of life; forgive us for viewing ourselves as separate from and dominating creation; give us instead a humble sense of ourselves as belonging to the earth so that we use our skill and power as stewards of the land from which we come and to which we return, through Jesus Christ who took on our flesh, and with you and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, forever and ever. Amen.

All Creatures Great and Small

Almighty and Everliving God, you bring forth and sustain every living thing; help us grow in compassion and care for the multitude of your creatures, that we may see them not as objects for our use, but as brothers and sisters that sing your never ending praise. Through Jesus Christ, our Shepherd and guide, who with you and the Spirit lives and reigns, one God, now and forever. Amen.
