Seeing the peaks of an extinct volcano rising out of the ocean took my breath away. Joy leapt within. Awe and gratitude invited me to stand quietly and let the beauty penetrate my being.

My prayer response:

God, Amazing! Beautiful! Exciting! Fascinating! Incredible! I see limitless possibility. I hear the call to move more deeply into my creativity. I feel so thankful for the opportunity to experience this island and this moment.


Biblical touchstones:

  •  Your righteousness [God] is like the mighty mountains, your judgments are like the great deep… Psalm 36:6
  • Blessed are you, O God of our ancestors, and blessed is your name in all generations forever. Let the heavens and the whole creation bless you forever. Tobit 8:5


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