God of my mountain peaks

O Lord, You are the God of the early mornings, the God of the late nights, the God of my mountain peaks, and the God of the sea. But, my God, my soul has horizons further away than those of the morning, deeper darkness than the nights of earth, higher peaks than any mountain peaks, greater depths than any sea in nature. You who are the God of all these, be my God. I cannot reach to the heights or to the depths; there are motives I cannot discover, dreams I cannot realize. My God, search me.
--Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) Scottish minister and teacher, author of the widely-read devotional My Utmost for His Highest. Psalm 139 was Chamber's inspiration for the prayer above.
