Rising

Fiery earth emerges from the sea.
The sun, rising in the East, climbs.
A human spirit opens anew to its Creator.

 

My prayer response:

Wow! Everywhere I look, I perceive Your creativity, Your value of beauty, and Your complex nature. I breathe in with thankfulness, I exhale with amazement. Everything sings Your song. Praise be to You, oh Wonder of Wonders.

 

Biblical touchstones:

  • God said, “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together into one
    place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:9-10
  • In God’s hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are God’s also. The sea is God’s, for God made it, and the dry land, which God’s hands have formed. O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before God, our Maker! Psalm 95:5-6
  • Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth; sing the glory of God’s name; give to God glorious praise. Psalm 66: 1-2

 

Invitation to prayer:
What prayers are emerging in your heart, mind, and body?
Pray them now.
