Father, you are the one who used your powerful right hand to stretch out the universe, set the planets and ignite the stars. Yet, you are the life changer, the heart toucher, the soul healer. You desire a relationship with us so close and intimate that you know our thoughts before the synapses in our brains fire. You hear our prayers before they form as a groan in the back of our throats. That’s how deeply you want to know us. That’s how fully you love us. That’s how wonderful you are, Father. I submit to that relationship, because it is what my heart craves. I praise you in the name of the Christ, and according to your perfect will. Amen.

“Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.” (Psalm 33: 20 ESV)
