Male and female energies each have their own beautiful contribution.
My prayer response:
To reflect Your light in all of who I am, and all of what I do, is my prayer, O magnificent Creator.
- God said, “Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years, and let them be lights in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. God set them in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day. Genesis 1:14-19
- Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very great. …You have made the moon to mark the seasons; the sun knows its time for setting. Psalm 104:1, 19
- Thus says the LORD, who gives the sun for light by day and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night… Jeremiah 31:35
Invitation to prayer:
Position your hands as the sun and the moon.
