I guess I should start this blog by giving notice that the prayer contained in this blog was stolen from my former senior pastor John Stumbo. John took a prayer from AW Tozer and re wrote it using today's wording. I love this prayer and thought I would share it.
You are over all things and under all things;
You are outside of all things and
inside of all things;
You are above all things, but not pushed up and
You are beneath all, but not pressed down;
Outside of all, but not excluded;
Inside of all, but not confined;
You are above all things presiding and
Beneath all things sustaining and
Outside of all things embracing and
Inside of all things filling.
You are God.
At the contemplation of your majesty,
All eloquence is dumb.
You are greater than anything said about you;
No language is worthy of you.
You are more sublime than all sublimity
Loftier than all loftiness
Profounder than all profundity
More splendid than all splendor
More powerful than all power
Greater than all majesty
More merciful than all mercy
More just than all justice.
This is the God we adore, our gracious unchangeable friend
Whose love is as great as his power,
And knows neither limit nor end.
