Psalm 139:13 Thought/Prayer:  Not Hooked Like a Rug.  Topics:  2 at end.

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.”  ESV (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Knit together.  The English Standard Version of the Bible used this word to describe how we were formed within our mothers.  I like this word.  It denies the thought that we were pasted together, sewn together, or hooked together like a rug.  We weren’t even crocheted.  Before our mothers even realized we were on the way, we were being knitted.  Got knew the pattern He would use for each of us before any part of us was formed (Ps. 139:16).  And what a wonderful choice, that of knitting.

Crocheting involves taking thread in one hand and working it against the fingers of the other hand.  Only one needle hook is needed.  And the designs can come out quite elaborately frilly.

Knitting, on the other hand, involves the working together of two hands equally, using needles that work constantly with the other, relying on the other to provide the next point of coming together in the yarn.  The result can have more thickness than crocheted items, and knitted projects may seem more intertwined throughout.  This result may be considered more difficult to unravel than other methods of handwork.

So figuratively speaking, when God created us, knitted us, both of His hands were continually involved in the process, working off each other.  And He created just the thickness and dimensions He had planned.

Lord, we thank you that we can think of ourselves as knitted; what a blessing.  We see ourselves as a product of love, working in and out, and You involved to the utmost.  We praise you for this and for the same workings you are using to make every preborn baby at this very moment.  Lord, we pray that they can ALL be born to behold all of Your other handiwork in the world.

Topics:  Praise God for giving us a glimpse of how we have been formed in our mothers.  Pray for the preborn.
Thank God not only for the promise of human life but for the promise of Easter as it comes each spring.
