Creator God, from whom we drew our first breath of life, give us a new and abiding awareness of the sanctity of your creation. May we never forget to be thankful for the wonder of life, and may we regard all living beings on our fragile earth as precious in your sight. We make our prayer in the name of your son, Jesus Christ, one God with you and the Holy Spirit forever. Amen.
