In our times of worship, alone or with others, we practice the awareness of the presence of God. God is everywhere and in all things. We cannot not be in the presence of God! Where else would we go? ‘To whom shall we go. You have (the words of) eternal life.’ (John 6:68) Also the psalmist says, ‘if we go up to the heavens above or deep beneath the earth, we still can’t get away from God.’ (Psalm 139:7–10).
Lord, open our eyes to see. Clear the mist of our self-centred humanity to behold your glory in the here and now, in the ordinary and the everyday.
