Lord, we are sorry for destroying your creation.
We have chopped down forests,
we have polluted the air,
we have poisoned the rivers and seas,
we have destroyed the places where animals live.
Help us change our ways so that we can look after the world,
and to make it the way that you want it to be.

Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

And God said, ‘Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth.’ God blessed them.

Lord, we thank you for the fish and the birds that inhabit this world. Without animals the world would be a tougher place to live, so we ask that you look after them as much as you look after us.

Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.
