Sunday Prayer 49

Heavenly Father,
Your awesome power surpasses our view,
and Your majesty is beyond our comprehension.
It is even this reality which makes Your grace more amazing
and Your love more tender.

The Scripture tells us:
‘The Name of the Lord is a fortified tower;
the righteous run to it and are safe’ (Proverbs 18:10).

We run into Your Name – Your character –
for refuge because of Your power and majesty;
if You are for us, who can be against us?

And we run into Your name for covenant-love,
finding that nothing can separate us from
the tender, fierce love of the God who made us
and came for us in Christ.

We seek You.
We praise You.
We hide in You.
We live in You.
