Sunlight

You give everyone your sunlight,
You give everyone your rain;

You give everyone your Son, Lord,
You give everyone your name.

So everyone deserves our kindness,
Everyone deserves our love;

Everyone deserves our help,
So earth becomes like heaven above.

******************************************

He gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike (Matthew 5:45; NLT).

God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son (John 3:16; NIV).

I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name (Ephesians 3:15; NIV).

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them (Romans 12.9; NLT).

Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10; NLT).

The Kingdom of God is already among you (Luke 17:21; NLT).

The Lord your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below (Joshua 2:11; NLT).

Ecstasy

An ecstasy came upon him (Acts 10:10; DBY).

Her tears fell on his feet, and she wiped them off with her hair (Luke 7:38; NLT).

In his shadow have I rapture (Song of Songs 2:3; DBY).

I am in despair (Psalm 69:20; NLT).

Let my words fall like rain on tender grass, like gentle showers on young plants (Deuteronomy 32:2; NLT).

*************************************

Lord,

Ecstasy
Is very close
To tears,

And pleasure
Can be very close
To pain.

So, may we face
Both rapture
And despair,

While your love
Falls on us
Like gentle rain.

GOD’S PRESENCE

God’s presence

Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord (Psalm 114:7; NLT).

As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the poplar trees, move quickly, because that will mean the LORD has gone out in front of you (2 Samuel 5:24; NIV).

For I am the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea, causing its waves to roar (Isaiah 51:15; NLT).

The heavens proclaim the glory of God (Psalm 19:1; NLT).

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).


Lord,
Your presence fills the earth –
How great you are!

We hear your footsteps
In restless tree-tops,
And glimpse your splendour
In high mountains.

We sense your power
In roaring waves,
And feel your touch
In gentle rain.

We see your glory
In the heavens,
And breathe your perfume
In wild flowers.

We taste your sweetness
In contemplation,
And experience your love
Within our hearts.

Lord,
Your presence fills the earth –
How great you are!

Prayer

Jesus replied, “ ‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind’ ” (Matthew 22:37; NLT).

But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit
(1 Corinthians 6:17; NIV).


Lord,
In prayer,
May my mind
Unite with yours,
Like rain
Falling into a stream.

Lord,
In worship,
May my heart
Unite with yours,
Like a stream
Flowing into a river.

Lord,
In contemplation,
May my soul
Unite with yours,
Like a river
Pouring into the sea.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.
