“O LORD, how manifold are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all. The earth is full of Your possessions.” Psalm 104:24
“Whoever is wise will observe these things, and they will understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.” Psalm 107:43
O Lord, how many are Your unknown mercies! I am surrounded with them on all sides — yet how little do I observe them and acknowledge them to Your praise! If You have punished even the heathen for not having glorified You in Your works, what will become of me? Pardon, O Lord, this my blindness and ingratitude; and to all Your other kindness add a thankful heart, that I may joyfully praise You for the blessing of my creation, the daily bounty of Your providence, and the adorable gift of Your Son. In all Your creatures may I see and adore Your infinite power, wisdom, and goodness; and be thereby continually strengthened in faith and stirred up to Your praise and love. Thus let me always converse with You, cleave to You, and have uninterrupted communion with You; that nothing may in the least disturb this disposition of my soul. O Lord, grant me this privilege and ever keep me near to Your most blessed self, for Your glory’s sake. Amen.
