Higher Yorkshire Two Weeks of Prayer – Day Twelve

Daniel Martin – Destiny Christian Church Wakefield

A few years ago I heard a message that inspired a Poem. The poem is simply about the love of God. In Ephesians 3:18-19, Paul talks about how we need to be able to ‘know’ God’s love – something which he describes as ‘beyond knowledge’. Let’s be praying for every young person that the Higher tour is going to come into contact with over the next few weeks. Let’s be praying that every one of them will have a revelation of who God is and His love for them.


Our love is one.

You may think about unity.

But not this time.


Our love is one.

The digit.

The number.

God’s love is not two.

Not the number.

Not the digit.

It is not our love plus one.

It does not fit with our equation.

It does not equate with our consideration.

We cannot consider that God’s love is our love plus one.

It is surpassing.

It is beyond.






Paul says we cannot grasp,

But we should grasp

He says we cannot know,

But we should know

How can we know the unknowable?

Tame the untamable,

Control the uncontrollable

Like looking through a keyhole

Like a raindrop in the ocean

It is not our love plus one

Is there answer?

Is there a way?


Not to the finite mind but through the infinite Spirit.

Given by God, poured out through Jesus, revealed by Spirit

The only way to

Know unknowable.
