Prayer

God’s hand

God’s hand 

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand (1 Peter 5:6; NIV).

In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind  (Job 12:10; NIV).

…when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things (Psalm 104:28; NLT).

…when you take away their breath, they die and return to the dust (Psalm 104:29; NLT).

For then the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NLT).

The Lord gave me what I had, and the Lord has taken it away. Praise the name of the LORD (Job 1:21; NLT).


Lord,
My life
Is in your hand.

When you open it,
I am satisfied
With good things.

When you close it,
I will die
And turn to dust.

Then my spirit
Will return to you,
Who gave it,

And I will praise your name
For evermore –
In paradise.
