Heavenly Father, thank you for the clean fresh air this morning. Thank you for the warm clothes and jacket so I can go out into the brisk morning air where I can exhale and a bit of a mist appears coming out of my mouth. Thank you for the phrase “you can see your breath”… interesting … it was in the beginning of Genesis that we read how you created men and women in your image:
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Genesis 1:27)
And then just a few paragraphs later we read about this creation in another very interesting way … which relates to how I can “see my breath” … for scriptures say that your breath was life … that you breathed life into man:
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Genesis 2:7)
Lord, here I am. Here I am as usual. Here I am as I am each day to sit with you and to lift up your daughter Lindsey in prayer. And today you gave me two scriptures to use for my prayer! And so I pray them both over your daughter and I ask that you find ways to remind her that you created her in your image and that you breathed life into her. Lord, I ask that you breathe a fresh blast of life into her this day. Totally refresh her with new life, new energy, new vigor. And we will give you the glory. All the glory is yours Lord. I ask this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
So God created man in His own image;
He created him in the image of God;
He created them male and female.
So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
