Prayer to the God of Design

Sovereign Lord,

Designer of all—


from the pattern of stars

splayed across the skies

to the detailed shapes of

flower petals


Your purpose is fulfilled—


intentional beauty

nothing wasted

nothing without benefit


nothing that cannot be redeemed


In You I find the hope

for all my failures,

the strength in all my weaknesses


Crafter of hearts,

Creator of souls:


I trust You to fulfill Your



purpose in who I am


nothing wasted

nothing without benefit


nothing unredeemed

    Redemption is one of my favourite words. I'm 37 and have never had a date. Still praying, daring to hope. I love your words that remind me that God is still up to something good, and able to make beautiful the time I think could've been used for something otherwise. Thanks!
