The Prayers for God’s Creation and Creatures


 

CelebrantGod the Creator: we pray that all your creatures may thank you and serve you,

People          We beseech you to hear us, good Lord.

 

That it may please you to grant favorable weather, temperate rain, and fruitful seasons, providing food and drink for all your creatures,

People       We beseech you to hear us, good Lord.

 

That it may please you to open our eyes to the joy and beauty of your creation, and to see your presence in all your works,

People       We beseech you to hear us, good Lord.

 

That it may please you to look with favor upon all who care for the earth, the water, and the air so the riches of your creation may abound for all your creatures, from age to age,

People       We beseech you to hear us, good Lord.

 

That it may please you to make us faithful stewards of your creation, caring for the earth, air, seas, and all the creatures who live in them,

People       We beseech you to hear us, good Lord.

 

That it may please you to make us aware of our responsibility to all your creatures and to be faithful in caring for them,

People       We beseech you to hear us, good Lord.

 

That it may please you to forgive our waste and pollution of your creation and to strengthen us to heal its wounds,

People       We beseech you to hear us, good Lord.

 

That it may please you to remember all animals who are suffering, including those who are hunted, trapped, deserted, lost, frightened, or abused, so that by our actions they may find safety and homes of loving care.

People       We beseech you to hear us, good Lord.

 

That it may please you to remember those animals who have died yet remain special or dear to us, that they may rejoice in the new creation of your kingdom,

People      We beseech you to hear us, good Lord.

 

Celebrant: Let us name with thanksgiving those animals for whom we now provide care, but who are at home this day: ______.

 

Let us name with thanksgiving those animals who have been our companions over the years, and who have died: ______.

 

Holy God, No sparrow falls without your attention; nothing dies that is lost to your remembrance; nothing exists that comes into being without your love. Give us just and compassionate hearts, that we may serve your will for creation, holding the vision of your peaceable reign in which all shall live with you eternally, through the Risen One, Christ our Savior. Amen.
