Psalm 104: 24-30 (NRSVA)

24 O Lord, how manifold are your works!
    In wisdom you have made them all;
    the earth is full of your creatures.
25 Yonder is the sea, great and wide,
    creeping things innumerable are there,
    living things both small and great.
26 There go the ships,
    and Leviathan that you formed to sport in it.

27 These all look to you
    to give them their food in due season;
28 when you give to them, they gather it up;
    when you open your hand, they are filled with good things.
29 When you hide your face, they are dismayed;
    when you take away their breath, they die
    and return to their dust.
30 When you send forth your spirit, they are created;
    and you renew the face of the ground.

Holy Spirit,

Keep me alert to Your presence today.

In the breath of wind on my face.

In the splash of rain on the ground.

In the quiet rhythm of my breathing.


Holy Spirit,

Help me to see you in unexpected places.

In the silent sadness of grief.

In the sudden slump of disappointment.

In the secret shame of failure.


Holy Spirit, 

Open my heart to new possibilities.

Lifting my eyes beyond my limitations.

Daring to believe in myself again.

Looking beyond the darkness to the new dawn.


Holy Spirit,

Breathe on me,

Re-energise me.

Raise me up. Amen.


For our July theme In Good Time we are revisiting past weeks of Daily Worship. Our writers this month are taking us back in time as we meditate on time itself! The piece above originally came from 2017.
