Our gracious heavenly Father, we thank You for the arrival of yet another Lord’s Day. You are the God of heaven and earth, the God of earth and sea, the God of days and weeks. We honor You as the one who created the entire universe in six literal days, and we honor You as the one who rested on the seventh in order to teach us how to rest, and how to be like You. When You remade the heavens and the earth, recreating them, we thank You that You put the day of rest as the first day, and have commanded us to build upon that foundation of rest.
We glory in Your wisdom, in Jesus’ name, amen.
