Creation through destruction of Chaos

Light a Candle to begin your prayer:

 

Almighty God open my mind and heart to your word as I read of your love for me in creation Amen

 

 Isaiah chapter 51 verse 9 – 16

Awake, awake, arm of the Lord,
    clothe yourself with strength!
Awake, as in days gone by,
    as in generations of old.
Was it not you who cut Rahab to pieces,
    who pierced that monster through?
 Was it not you who dried up the sea,
    the waters of the great deep,
who made a road in the depths of the sea
    so that the redeemed might cross over?
 Those the Lord has rescued will return.
    They will enter Zion with singing;
    everlasting joy will crown their heads.
Gladness and joy will overtake them,
    and sorrow and sighing will flee away

 

Reflection on Bible Reading:

This Poem is from the book of Isaiah. In the Old Testament Chaos and Evil are represented by a giant sea monster called Rahab. In the New Testament it is represented by a Dragon or the devil. Creation is shown as the destruction of the chaos of evil and the bringing of order through law. Again it is the order of law that brings life and the chaos of disorder that brings death. This is true in both nature and our own lives.

 

Pray this prayer aloud:

By the word of our Lord the heavens were made
By the spirit of our Lord was life begun
By the wisdom of our Lord his laws were laid
By the love of our Lord was born his Son
By the grace of our Lord mankind was saved
By the power of our Lord the victory was won Amen
