The Gift of Wonder

Wonder - the gift of our Abba Father. As this gentleman from a bygone era so beautifully puts it, it is a gift he ardently desired...and so it is with me. Ah, He has given me the "gift of wonder" - surely there is always more, for there is no end to His universe filled with an infinite number of things to "surprise me, amaze me, awe me...")
Yes, my prayer is that of Joshua Abraham Heschel...
The Grace of Wonder
Joshua Abraham Heschel
Dear Lord, grant me the grace of wonder. Surprise me, amaze me, awe me in every crevice of your universe. Delight me to see how your Christ plays in ten thousand places. . .to the Father through the features of men's faces. Each day enrapture me with your marvelous things without number. I do not ask to see the reason for it all; I ask only to share the wonder of it all.
