“Knowledge & Wonder”
We thank you, O God, for these magnificent brains with which you have blessed us. We thank you that we can think, reason, ponder, and understand. We thank you for those who put their brains to work trying to solve the world’s problems and trying to make the world a better place in which to live. We thank you that we can put our brains to work trying to solve our life problems and trying to make our life a better one in which to live.
Help us to see our brains as the great blessing that they are and to use our brains to the greatest extent that we possibly can.
We thank you also, O God, for the awareness that some realities lie beyond the reach of our reasoning abilities. We thank you that you in your grace and love have chosen in the ways that please you to reveal yourself to us that we might know you. We praise you for whatever leaps of faith we have been able to make that have put us in a position to know you better and to experience your love and grace more fully.
We stand in awe of the ways that you empower us to understand.
We stand in awe of the ways in which you enable us to celebrate and to submit to the wonder of it all.
Stunned both by what we know and by what we don't know, we praise you.
