“In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye, like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them aloft.”
“I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms…”
“…those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles…”
Almighty God, you cover us with your strong and beautiful wings.
When we are helpless, you lift us from the mire to soar the heights. Our hope is found only in our majestic King of the skies.
Teach us to know the power that renews and resurrects. May we rest effortlessly, like a circling eagle, on the currents of your grace.
We ask this in the name of Christ; pinioned to free us, brought down to be raised high.
