My Vision of Your Glory-Lent 9, 2020

Prayer Focus: God’s Glory in Creation

Lord Jesus, help me to see Your glory as it is reflected back to You in Your creation. It’s beautiful that You rested on the seventh day, that space and time for resting was blessed by You, and You called it holy. Your creation will be forever reflecting Your glory back to You. There is still so much good and beautiful in this world even though it must grieve You that it has been marred by human sin. As I admire the night sky filled with stars and a moon seeming to smile from the heavens, and as I shield my eyes from the brilliance of the sun that gives off light and heat even all these years since You created them, I’m filled with wonder at the work of Your hands. Help me to see that there’s beauty in work. Help me also to rest from my work so that I may have space to reflect on all that You have made and all that I can do by Your grace. I’m amazed how You designed mankind that way. You gave human beings minds and hands and You give us strength, innovation, and creativity. Forgive me for the times I take credit for my work as if I had ownership instead of stewardship responsibilities. Forgive me for the times I feel my work is too important or too critical to set it aside to honor Your Sabbath. Give me wisdom to know when to work, and when to rest. May all I do bring glory to You and may I set apart a time and space to rest and reflect on the glory which is Yours alone. In Christ’s Name. Amen.
