Father of Creation,
Painter of sunrise and sunset,
we surrender to you and your purposes for this day.
May our lives today bring you even the tiniest fraction
of the glory of your sunrise this morning.
In Jesus we pray.
O, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!
Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?
Who has ever given to God, that God should repay him?
For from him and through him and to him are all things.
To him be the glory forever!
Amen. Romans 11: 33-36
