A Thanksgiving Prayer

A Prayer for Creation on Thanksgiving

Adapted from ELW, p. 81

Abundant God, in your self-emptying love you gathered up and reconciled all creation to the yourself. Innumerable galaxies of the heavens worship you. Creatures that grace the earth rejoice in you. All those in the deepest seas bow to you in adoration. As with them we give you praise.

We give you thanks for the fruitful earth, which produces what is needed for life. Bless those who work in the fields; grant favorable weather to all engaged in agriculture; and help us to ensure that all people share the fruits of the earth.

We praise you for the returning of planting and harvest seasons, for the fertility of the soil, for the harvesting of the corps, and for all other blessings that you in your generosity pour out on all people.

We give thanks that your first covenant of mercy was with every living creature. When your Son came among us, the waters of the river welcomed him, the heavens opened to greet his arrival. With all the world's people, may we who are washed into new life through baptism seek the way of your new creation, the way of justice and care, mercy and peace. Grant that we may cherish the earth, our home, and live in harmony with this good creation, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
