Praise

I enjoyed spending time with 4th through 6th graders during AWANA this past school year. One of the assignments in AWANA is to write a prayer of praise to God.  I would like to share with you the prayer written by Jessica Countryman on March 2, 2005.

You, my God, are wonderful beyond imagination.
Your works are so amazing.
I can’t believe that you would want to be my father.

The seasons display your beauty.
The meadows express your compassionate ways.
The mountains make known your power.
Yet all these things are nothing, nothing compared to you.

You, my God, are wonderful beyond imagination.
All I can say, if anything at all, is
“Why would you, the Alpha, Omega, Creator of this world,
think of me, or consider me your child?
Yet, for this I give you my life in submissive gratitude,
for I am in reverence of you.”
