God Imagining Humanity (Day 5 of Creation at Chartres)

The gift of imagination opens takes us into the realm of the possible.

My prayer response:

Dear Creator, Teach me to imagine. May I be more like You.

Biblical touchstones:

  • But Jesus looked at them and said, “For mortals it is impossible, but for God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
  • Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21

  • [You] have clothed yourselves with the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of its creator. Colossians 3:10

Invitation to prayer:

Position your hands as God the Creator.

God's Hands, God Imagining Humanity


What prayers are emerging from your heart, mind, and body?
Pray them now. Let them lead you where you need to go.
