a prayer for earth day

O gracious Father,
you open your hand
and fill all things living with plenitude:
Bless the lands and waters,
and multiply the harvests of the world;
let your Spirit go forth,
that he may renew the face of the earth;
show your loving-kindness,
that our land may give her increase;
and save us from selfish use of what you give,
that people everywhere may give you thanks;
through Christ our Lord.
