Sing a new song, for God has done wonderful things! Sing to God all the earth, sing praise and songs of joy! Let the oceans roar and all the creatures that live within it give praise! (Psalm 98 adapted)
May this prayer be in our hearts and minds as we mark World Oceans Day on 8 June.
This day is part of a growing global movement calling world leaders especially to protect the 30% of our blue planet that consists of the oceans by 2030.
Of course the call extends to all of us to become highly protective of our seas and waterways in order to help ensure a healthy home for all!
