Heavenly Father … this day I ponder the glory of the heavens, the majestic beauty of the night sky. When you created the stars, you did not create just enough that the sky looked pretty. You did not stop with merely a couple hundred stars, nor a couple thousand stars. Even a million stars was not enough. You created billions … and all this for us as part of your creation that we have before our very eyes. Thank you Lord. Thank you for caring for us so much that you would create such a vast universe for us to see – both with our eyes and with our telescopes. Thank you! And thank you for the scripture that goes with this for me to use in my prayer this day for your artistic daughter:
Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth (Isaiah 40:26)
Lord, I pray that you would grant Lindsey time one night this week to simply gaze up at the starry sky. Grant her time for this Lord. And while she lifts her eyes to the sky, let her see your majestic beauty unfold before her very eyes. Let it be her inspiration for the next day. Yes! Lord, show Lindsey a bit of your glory as she lifts her eyes on high. And in turn, we will give you all the glory Lord. All the glory is indeed yours! I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.
HCSB: Look up and see: who created these? He brings out the starry host by number; He calls all of them by name. Because of His great power and strength, not one of them is missing.
