Sunsets, especially when viewed over still water, invite calm reflection.
My prayer response:
God, embraced by the beauty of this moment, I thank You for the day that has passed. Help me to understand its gifts and challenges as You understand them. May the time we spend together reflecting help me to live tomorrow with even greater sensitivity to Your will for my life and the world.
- I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother…
- Let those who are wise…consider the steadfast love of God. Psalms 107:43
- …serve God faithfully with all your heart; for consider what great things God has done for you. 1 Samuel 12:24
- …let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in God’s sight. 1 Peter 3:4
Invitation to prayer:
What prayers are emerging from your heart, mind, and body?
Pray them now.
