Earth Day Prayer

We thank you for this earth, our home;
for the wide sky and the blessed sun,
for the ocean and streams,
for the towering hills and the whispering wind,
for the trees and green grass.

We thank you for our senses
by which we hear the songs of birds,
and see the splendor of fields of golden wheat,
and taste autumn's fruit,
and rejoice in the feel of snow,
and smell the breath of spring flowers.

For each new dawn is filled with possibilities
for new beginnings and new discoveries.
In this new day with God, all things are possible.
We are restored and renewed in a
joyous awakening to the wonder that
our lives are and, yet, can be.

Happy Earth Day
