Tuesday's Prayer

O God, I have to stretch my thoughts
to think of You,
For You are great, as great as all the world,
And I cannot imagine all the world.
I can only understand the part I see and think,
"like that, and more of that,
and more, and more,"
Until it seems to go right on forever.
I stand on tiptoe and reach up and up,
trying to see beyond the clouds and sky,
and think, "The world is taller still than that,
and God is greater even than the world."
