God Loves Adam Into Being (Day 6 of Creation at Chartres)

God’s love is in the details: the soft reach of the head, the slight forward tilt of the upper body, the gentle gaze, the caress of the left hand, the supportive holding of the right hand.

My prayer response:

Creator, Help me feel you reaching out and touching me.

Biblical touchstones:

God created humankind… Genesis 1:27

God formed man… Genesis 2:7

Thus it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living being. 1 Corinthians 15:45

Invitation to prayer:

God Creates AdamPosition your hands, heart, and head as God

God Creates Adam

How are your emotions, thoughts, and senses inspiring you to pray?
