Math Prayer for High School

Heavenly Father,

You hold the whole of creation in your hands,
From the vast and awesome universe, to each tiny grain of sand.
You're the creator of all time, you balance night and day,
Within a mathematical framework, infinite and safe.

From gravity to motion, from genetics to medicine,
Your imprint goes through everything, it's so inspiring.
No algebraic genius could fathom all you've done,
From each microscopic atom to the heat of the flaming sun.

And so from every angle we live and breathe each day,
The wonder of your artistry that holds the world in place.
And yet the most astounding thing is with all this in your grasp,
That you provide the answer to the questions that we ask.

The legacy of forgiveness, as you subtract our bad things,
You worked out the whole equation, when Jesus bore our sins.
The test has all been finished, Jesus rose again,
Eternity is infinite, heavenly life begins.

Short Maths Prayer
(suitable for primary aged children)

Dear God, I can not count the stars you've spread across the skies,
Measure the deepest oceans or fathom how an eagle flies.
This world is more than maths can hold - a miracle equation,
Amazing life that multiples, a brilliant creation.

And yet, I've learnt that you still value the smallest little parts,
And know each of your children, you hold me in your heart.
You count each hair upon my head, my inner thoughts you know.
You hear the prayers I say to you, walking by me where ever I go.

Thank you God for the universe whose beauty I can't comprehend,
And for the most amazing thing of all - that I can be your friend.

A Beautiful Prayer

Beautiful Tree Branches hanging low down

I think one of our deepest longings as humans is to know that there is a purpose for our lives, that we have a role to play in this world. Thankfully as Christians we can be certain that life isn’t just a random series of events. God the creator of the earth and the heavens Read More

An Ancient Celtic Blessing

“May the Road Rise Up To Meet You” is a beautiful old Celtic blessing. Blessings are a gift and ancient ones like these help us to become open channels for the fragrance of Christ to surround those we give out to. I love the references to creation – the sun, the wind, the rain – Read More

In August of this year, our church asked us if we might create a film recording of the Nicene Creed (this creed is an ancient declaration of the Christian faith dating back to A.D.325 and the early church communities). We decided to record many different voices because we wanted to build a diverse picture of Read More
