Psalm 139:13-14 

For you created my inner organs. You wove me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and my soul knows that very well.

Dear Heavenly Father,

You have created such amazing bodies for us for our souls to live in while we are on this earth! The way all the organs work to function together; the way it heals when we have a cut or scrape. The cells will regenerate themselves when damaged, yet we only grow to a specific size when we grew in our youth. Lord, you have made this body; you wove me together in my mother’s womb. Like a skilled weaver, you made all the systems and organs function together in an orderly manner. You have created the human body with so much detail that it takes electron microscopes to see the minutest details of our cells and DNA. Yet the question remains is there something smaller; the workings of our bodies are still being discovered. With such reverence you made us, we should treat our bodies with the same care, love, and respect; rather than the abuse and neglect we put them through. Our bodies are temples to serve you; they move our souls from one place to another. So we can interact with others who do not know you. Lord, thank you for giving us such magnificent bodies; forgive me when I do not treat it with the love and respect that is due. Through your Spirit, use me to share the good news of the one who created these beautiful bodies with those who do not know you. Without you, they will have to spend the rest of eternity suffering the pains of hell that will never end. Please give us the courage to share the message of what your Son has done for us. The fact, he died that we will live, and because of faith in him, this incredible body you created will be restored to live with you for eternity. Amen.

Compare your body in all its wonders to the most sophisticated thing man has made, an engine, a rocket, computer, or telescope. Can you really say, with a straight face, the human body just happened? My faith is in Jesus, who not only created me but has saved me.
