Blessed be the name of the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore!
From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised! (Ps 113:2-3 ESV)
Father God, thank You for how You reveal Yourself to us in and through Creation. Lord, I am humbled by Your Majesty, in awe of Your Glory and thankful for Your forgiveness, mercy and grace for those of us who are in Christ. This world does not exist on its own. Thank You Lord for Your Sovereignty over when the sun rises and when it sets. May we never forget that You love color! Lord, calm this reader today. May they find rest, peace and comfort in You. Thank You Lord for each and every day that You give us. For the reader who does not know Christ, Lord stir their heart today. Lord You know when we will meet our demise, may we love, worship and serve You well while there is still time. Thank You Lord for the Beauty of Your Creation and thank You for this reader. In Jesus’s Name I pray. Amen.
