Envisioning, the ability to perceive far more than the obvious, is part of creation.
My prayer response:
God, help me to understand how to separate things while holding them together. Enlarge my ability to envision what is possible.
- God said, “Let there be a dome in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” So God made the dome and separated the waters that were under the dome from the waters that were above the dome. And it was so. God called the dome Sky. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.Genesis 1:6-8
- Then you, God, spoke in a vision… Psalm 88:19
Invitation to prayer:
Position your body, hands and head as you see God positioned here.
