the grace of wonder

"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, lovely in limbs,

lovely in eyes not his, 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."

Joshua Abraham Heschel
