Praise!

This morning we continued our sermon series ‘Teach us to pray’ and Andrew helped us to think about the wonderful paradox that God is our father in heaven.

This afternoon I was reading George Herbert’s poem ‘Praise 2’ which some of us might know as the old hymn ‘King of glory, king of peace’. Herbert includes the glorious line:
‘And the cream of all my heart
I will bring thee.’
It made me think of gold top milk which has a layer of thick cream in the neck of the bottle where all the richness of the milk has risen to the surface. I wonder what it would mean if we brought all the cream…all the richness of our hearts…to God in praise this week?

with love and prayers
