Generous God, I cannot begin to name
all the signs and wonders you have shown me,
especially in the recent past. Kindnesses
sent when I was at my lowest, surprises when a
word read affirmed or clarified an earlier thought,
opportunities more abundant than I could have imagined.
Some were truly improbable—
the red bird that crashed into a window beside me.
As it lay on the ground and drew its last breath, I was given
the answer to a troubling question. The dream that revealed
something I could not have known any other way.
The weight of unseen hands on my head, blessing me
for a journey I didn’t know was coming.
You are a God who constantly surprises.
Thank you for all love’s expressions, for the way
you reveal yourself time and time again. Amen.
