Prayer #29: Language of God

This Fresh Air interview with geneticist and evangelical Christian Francis Collins is a meditation in its own right. It discusses the intersection of faith and science, and how they complement theistic belief -- not discredit it. A must-hear for the Lenten season.

Prayer #29: Language of God


Lord, You have created a world of complex mystery and staggering intricacy. As we enter the holiest of weeks in the liturgical year, keep these mysteries at the forefront of our consciousness and our questioning.

May we use our questions and doubts to plumb the depths of our personal belief. And may we arrive at a richer understanding of your powerful love -- the true source of this great, glorious, gorgeous world, which is ours to explore, and yours to delight in.

Hosanna to the Son of David on Palm Sunday -- Amen.
