And God said, ‘Let the earth bring forth living creatures of every kind.’ Then God said, ‘Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over all living creatures of the earth.’ So God created humankind in his image, male and female, and blessed them.
Lord, we thank you for creating us, and giving us our families and friends. We ask that you help us with our relationships, help us make our strong ones to be stronger, our broken ones to be healed and our new ones to continue growing.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.
