Pause in the Presence. “In the beginning God”. This is how the Bible begins, and this is how prayer must begin. Words without the Presence remain just words, but we are not without the Presence. Let the Word become flesh and dwell among us that we may hold His Glory.
In the Beginning GOD
In the beginning of space
of the universe, GOD.
In the beginning of creation
of mankind, GOD.
In the beginning of individuals
of me, GOD.
In the beginning of this year
of this week
of this hour, GOD.
In the beginning of each thought
of each word
of each deed, GOD.
Add to this any beginnings you feel are important to you this day. Know that He abides with you and surrounds you.
“As He was in the beginning, He is now and shall be forever, God.” Amen.
