May the One who can scoop the ocean with one hand–
the One who is profoundly present to each grain of sand–
hold you firmly
and carry you gently
—Sam Hamilton-Poore, Earth Gospel: A Guide to Prayer for God’s Creation (Upper Room Books, 2009)
How do the ocean and the sand remind you of God’s presence? Join the conversation.
O LORD God of hosts,
who is as mighty as you, O LORD?
Your faithfulness surrounds you.
You rule the raging of the sea;
when its waves rise, you still them.
—Psalm 89:8-9 (NRSV)
