FROM THE BEGINNING, O God,
you formed light that I might see;
sky that I might look;
earth and sea that I might seek and search.
You formed creatures of every kind—
swarming, flying, swimming, creeping—
that I, O God, might find my place with them;
that I, O God, might praise your making them.
Open my eyes,
too often closed;
clear the sleep from my heart,
too often settled;
that I may seek the blessing of your presence,
O God of my beginning, O God of my life.
Pray today’s prayer. Share your thoughts.
[Jesus] told those who were selling the doves, “Take these things out of here! Stop making my Father’s house a marketplace!”
John 2:16, NRSV
