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.
