A Prayer for Monday, January 25, 2016


O God,

You made us to be inquisitive.

Thank you that we are able to inquire into such
important matters as creation and salvation.

Thank you for the scientists who help us
understand how you created the world.

Thank you for the theologians who
help us understand how you save us.

Thank you that we can all ponder and
try to understand such vital realities.

But don’t let us get so caught up in the question of
“how” that we forget to celebrate the fact of “that.”

Help us to live with gratitude that you created us.
Help us to live with thanksgiving that you save us.
Help us to live in a spirit of awe that you are you.

We can’t help but inquire into “how,” but
there’s a lot about “how” that we’ll never know.

So help us always to celebrate the fact that you
do what you do and that you are who you are.
