Blessing of Tony and Kate’s Bees
O God, who know how to work benefits through human labour and irrational living things, You instructed us in your loving-kindness to employ the fruits and works of the bees for our needs. Now we humbly beseech Your majesty: Be pleased to bless the bees and increase them for the profit of the human race, preserving them and making them abundant. Let everyone hoping in Your majesty and Your boundless compassion, and labouring in the care of these living things, be counted worthy to receive abundant fruits of their labours and to be filled with heavenly blessings in Christ Jesus our Lord, to whom is due glory, honour and worship to the ages of ages. Amen.
