Imaginative God – a prayer

Over the last several years, I’ve found myself composing prayers. It’s not something I ever set out to do; it just came along on its own. Here’s a prayer that came along a couple of weeks ago (I’m still working on memorizing it).

Grace and peace to you…

Imaginative God – a prayer

Imaginative God,
beyond my imagination,
I am but a figment of your thought,
a speaking of your word,

Which gives me my true identity,
my concrete reality,
my reason for being,
my complete fulfillment.

In your grace and love
speak me today, so I may
see as you speak me to see
and hear as you speak me to hear;

Think of me today, so I may
learn as you think of me learning
and feel as you think of me feeling;

Imagine me today, so I may
act as you imagine me acting
and rest as you imagine me resting.

Gracious, imaginative God,
may I, this day,
be as you imagine me to be.
