I can never escape from your spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the place of the dead, you are there.

If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me

I could ask the darkness to hide me

and the light around me to become night –

but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.

(Psalm 139:7-12a NLT)

For your invisible presence

revealed in the unexpected moment

For your silent power

surprising in its irresistible challenge

For your unlikely people

carriers of the wonder-filled message of Jesus;

We give you thanks and praise, O God.
