A Prayer to God’s Majesty: gazing upon the mountains

“The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad;
    let the distant shores rejoice.
Clouds and thick darkness surround him;
    righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.” (Psalm 97:1-2)

In the distance, across Flathead Lake,
mountains tower, touching the heights,
shrouded in heavy cloud,
hiding the distant peaks from view.

You, God, are my God,
surrounded in clouds and thick darkness—
known, yet not fully knowable;
hidden, yet still perceptible;
available, yet mysterious.

Open my eyes to see You today.
Open my ears to hear You today.
Open my mind to know You today.
Open my heart to receive You today.

Enlarge my soul in the vastness of Your presence
and relieve me from striving that I might truly rest in You.
You, God, are my God,
surrounding me in the cloud of Your presence,
lighting up my darkness in the brilliance of You.
