Thanksgiving

Lord, You said, “Let Us make man in Our image, in Our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over the livestock and over all the earth and over all the creatures that creep on the earth.” So You created man in Your own image; male and female You created them. Then You blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the earth.” Then You said, “Behold, I have given you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it; they will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground, in which there is life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so. You saw all that You had made, and it was very good. (Genesis 1:26–31)

And establish the work of our hands for us—
