Prayer on a Plane

O dear God, You sing to me, You speak to me through your created beauty. I can do nothing but lift my hands to you in worship, in awe. You are good to me. Why do you love me so? I bow my head in worship. Why can I not stretch my hands higher to you? I'm so bound. Cleanse me. Your love for me is a symphony of graciousness. I fall to my knees O God. I hope in you. I want to yearn for you. Your music awakens my heart. Move me constantly God. The ebb and flows are stifling. I want to yearn for you Jesus. Only you. You stretched your arms for me on the cross, so now I stretch my arms to you in praise. Thank you for saving me from myself. I am incapable. "May I never lose the wonder of the cross." The chasm between me and you was gaping wide. You are my bridge to life. Help me believe Jesus. You satisfied the wrath I deserve. I stand in your death Christ. Your ocean of love. I'm no longer held by my own sin. "You command my destiny." I can never be pulled away from your grip. Hold tight Lord - I am so prone to wander. Holy Holy Holy are you God Almighty.
