You are the one who put me together inside my mother’s body, and I praise you because of the wonderful way you created me. Everything you do is marvellous. Of this I have no doubt. Psalm 139.13-14 (CEV)
Reports state that crime levels are falling at the moment and one of the reasons could be due to the advances in forensic science – first there was the uniqueness of fingerprints, then each persons DNA being different and then recognition by the iris of our eyes – how amazing and marvellous.
Isn’t it wonderful to know that we are all individually unique so when a husband and wife are one that uniqueness must be exponentially much greater with a unique plan and purpose designed by God – Wow!!! Try and get your head around that!!!!
Prayer (as a couple):
Father, may we never forget how unique we both are but each created in your image and that you have a special plan and purpose for our life together. Amen.
Prayer (for others):
Father, we pray for ________ and ________ who seem to find it difficult to believe that you created them both in your image and that you have a unique plan and purpose for them as a couple. Amen.
Last year some bones found in a Leicester car park were, beyond reasonable doubt, identified by the use of DNA as those of Richard III who died 600 years ago– this ‘amazing’ discovery was made possible by the fact that God created each of us as unique beings!!! As my grandson would say – Awesome!!!
