A New Year Prayer for the Earth

Blessed is the Earth for she is our mother.

Divine is her sun for it provides our planet with energy, joy, and a way to measure time.

Hallowed is her soil for it nourishes all that stands upon her surface.

Exalted is our bedrock for it is her foundation.

Sacred is her oceans for they provide us with energy, bounty, and stability.

Revered is her air for it surrounds all with balance and rejuvenation without being seen.

Blissful are our plants for they make Earth green.

Adored are our animals for they move life.

Fortunate are we humans to be born into such harmony.

Holy is Gaia the one living organism that we call home.

Blessed is the Earth for she is all.

She is complete.

She holds the womb that gives us life.

Blessed is the Earth for she is our mother.
