Yours the seed, yours the growth;
yours the water, yours the thirst;
yours the wild, yours the tame.
You are within me, O God,
and within all creation—
and you are beyond.
Shape and fill me this day
and all creation
with your grace.
—Sam Hamilton-Poore, Earth Gospel: A Guide to Prayer for God’s Creation (Upper Room Books, 2009)
What grace from God do you need this day? Join the conversation.
Know that the LORD is God—
he made us; we belong to him.
We are his people,
the sheep of his own pasture.
—Psalm 100:3 (CEB)
