God's Attention to Detail

Dear God,

Thank you for this day.
May we find reason for celebration
And thanksgiving as it unfolds.

Praise from the 139th Psalm:
I am fearfully and wonderfully made; 
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Father, I read that…
We inhale 150 million air molecules in every breath,
We make 2 million red blood cells every second,
We have 10 trillion cells in our body,
That every cell contains a trillion atoms.

And we have your perspective, Lord Christ, from Luke 12:
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

That speaks to your attention to detail,
To the detail of our lives.

May we trust in your sovereignty,
Your power, your care. Amen.
