His Wonders to Perform

Jesus answered and said to him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.” John 13:7
 
I recommend reading John 13.
 
William Cowper devoted his energy to secular poetry rather than spiritual hymns, earning him a prominent place in English literature. “The Task” made him famous in England. “Pity for Poor Africans” appeared in 1877 and contributed to efforts to abolish slavery. Shortly before his death he wrote “The Castaway” in which he describes himself as a sailor swept overboard into the Atlantic Ocean to perish. One of his lesser known poems gave us the words to the hymn, “God Moves in a Mysterious Ways” written in 1773.
 
My prayer for the week:
Dear Lord, Give us the tools for building peace by giving us kind hearts, sturdy hands and the faith to accomplish this task. Shake hands and pass on God’s love to those around you. Thank you Lord for standing with us in sharing Your love in bringing Your love and peace to others . Amen
