I bless this glorious planet and all that live upon it.
In Genesis we read, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth … Then God said, ‘Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land’ … God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” Today I express my deep gratitude to God for this planet and all its glory. To show my appreciation, I take care of my earthly home. I start a garden, plant a tree, or pick up garbage in my community. I enjoy a walk in nature or meditate at sunrise. I bless the Earth by caring for it and respecting its delicate balance, which allows all life to coexist in harmony and flourish in abundance.
I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name.—Ephesians 3:14-15
