Yesterday, when I was praying even more sleepily than usual, this prayer hit me between the eyes. Instantly, I was wide awake. There was no going back to my deliciously drowsy state, so I began to write. Within less than an hour it was finished, including a few essential references.
NB: This prayer relates back to “My Alpha, my Omega”, which can be found here: https://wp.me/p45bCr-eL2.
You guided my conception and formed me in the womb.
(Job 10:10; NLT).
1. Dawn of Conception:
We are your children.
2. Source of All Souls:
You give birth, life and breath.
3. God of Creation:
We are your people –
4. You are our First,
And our Last, beyond death.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. (Revelation 22:13; NLT).
🔻 You guided my conception and formed me in the womb. You clothed me with skin and flesh, and you knit my bones and sinews together. You gave me life and showed me your unfailing love (Job 10:10-12; NLT).
🔻 We are his children (Galatians 4:6; NLT).
🔻 The LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul (Genesis 2:7; KJV).

🔻 God, the LORD, created the heavens and stretched them out. He created the earth and everything in it. He gives breath to everyone, life to everyone who walks the earth (Isaiah 42:5; NLT).
🔻 You created all things (Revelation 4:11; NLT).
🔻 I will give them hearts that recognize me as the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God (Jeremiah 24:7; NLT).
