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.
