A Prayer of Praise to the Lord:
O God, brilliant Lord, yours is a household name.
Nursing infants gurgle choruses about you; toddlers shout the songs that drown out enemy talk, and silence atheist babble.
I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous, your handmade sky-jewelry, moon and stars mounted in their settings.
Then I look at my micro-self and wonder, Why do you bother with us? Why take a second look our way?
Yet we’ve so narrowly missed being gods, bright with Eden’s dawn light.
You put us in charge of your handcrafted world, repeated to us your Genesis-charge,
Made us lords of sheep and cattle, even animals out in the wild,
Birds flying and fish swimming, whales singing in the ocean deeps.
O God, brilliant Lord, your name echoes around the world. A God Notice
Psalm 8 From the Message Bible.
Psalm 8 will be a great Lectio Divina Prayer today!
