Heavenly Father, creator of all living creatures, we come before you today to lift up the animals of this world and to ask for your loving care and protection for them. We recognize that these creatures are a special part of your creation and that each one has a unique and important role to play in this world.
Dear Lord, we pray for the well-being of all animals, both wild and domesticated. We ask that you bless the animals who roam freely in your vast and beautiful creation, and that you also bless those who live in our homes and on our farms, providing us with food, clothing, and comfort.
We know that animals are vulnerable to harm, and we pray that you will keep them safe from the dangers of this world. We ask that you protect them from cruelty, neglect, and exploitation, and that you provide them with the food, water, and shelter they need to thrive.
Father, we also lift up the earth, your holy creation, and ask that you bless and protect it from the harm and destruction caused by human beings. We pray that we will learn to care for the earth, to use its resources wisely, and to live in harmony with all living creatures.
In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
A prayer for nature
Heavenly Father, Creator of all that is good and beautiful in this world, we come before You in humble prayer, asking for Your protection and care for the natural world that You have created.
From the mountains to the oceans, from the forests to the deserts, Your hand has formed and molded this world to be a place of wonder and majesty. And yet, in our own ignorance and selfishness, we have caused harm to Your creation.
We ask for Your mercy and grace upon all the creatures of the earth, from the smallest insect to the mightiest elephant. May they live in peace, free from fear and suffering, and may their habitat be protected and preserved for generations to come.
We pray for the oceans and the rivers, for the air and the soil, that they may be purified and refreshed, and that Your creation may flourish once again.
We ask for Your guidance and wisdom as we work to heal the planet, that we may be good stewards of all that You have entrusted to us. And may we learn to live in harmony with all creatures and with the earth, that Your love and peace may reign in all the world.
We make this prayer through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
