Prayer for Awe and Wonder
Lord, I stand in awe and wonder of you and the works of your hands. In this moment, I feel so small yet so held by you. So safe in your hands, the hands that created the world! God, you breathed the stars into existence. You made land and sea, sun and moon, grass and ground, tree and bud. You are marvelous. Wonderful. Mighty. And so creative. Thank you for your creativity. Thank you for creating... For the starlit nights and the ocean breeze and the way laughter feels. I feel so small but so seen and so cherished and so loved... because you made all this and all the people in the world, and yet you notice me. You walk with me. You listen to my prayers. You are attentive to my needs. You watch me in all my steps and keep my foot from slipping. I am so small and you are so big and I am so in awe of you. Amen.
