As followers of Jesus, we have the opportunity to live each day in wild amazement of God. If we pay attention, we can begin discovering the wonders all around us—those moments of spiritual awakening that spark our curiosity to know God more.
For the next 21-Days we’re challenging you to find the wonder in your life. We’re praying that during the next 21 days, you will sense the Holy Spirit leading you to do and say things you may have passed by before.
So, every day we will focus on a different opportunity to find wonder in the ordinary (and sometimes the extraordinary), and we invite you to post your experiences, your aha moments, and your photos that display what you’re discovering along the way. Whether you post on Facebook or your blog, Pin on Pinterest, Instagram or Tweet, use hashtag #LIVEWONDERSTRUCK. We’re going to be looking for you, celebrating with you, and even giving gifts to you along the way.
Tomorrow we’re going to kick off the 21-Day Wonder Challenge. A different activity is provided for each day. To prepare, will you join me right now in praying for wonder.
Ask God to unleash His wonder in your life like you’ve never experienced it before. Now live today expectant for how God is going to answer.
Today: Post, pin, or proclaim a prayer for wonder.
Example: God, show me your wonder. I want to #LIVEWONDERSTRUCK

I am listening to the Organic God right now…just listening helps fill my heart to wonder. I just love it.
Lord, I long to live lost in Your Wonder and Beauty…for my heart and eyes to feel and see your love everywhere…that I too can live without excuse…because since the being of the creation of this world…your invisible qualities…your eternal powers and divine nature can be clearly seen. And I already thank you…because you want to answer this desire even more than I know how to pray it…so thank you and I look forward to this wonderstruck journey.
I realized we were supposed to do the hashtag thing….well I really just learned what those were….I don’t have much social media…joining fb recently was a huge step for me….so much a friend commented did he*# freeze over 🙂
No problem, Ro. We’re happy to have you– hashtag or no hashtag.
I want to fully engage in the life You have for me, and persevere in the race set out for me. Help me, O Lord, to be open to your amazing-ness and #LIVEWONDERSTRUCK!
May we all be open and willing to look up and see your wonders, Father!
Lord, I am on a journey with You… I have never been this way before! Take me to places new and exciting… I want to see and experience all the wonder of You in my life. Let me not miss a single moment of Your amazing wonder as we journey this life together… #livewonderstruck

Annnndddd I just realized this article was from 2013. LOL
Father, hold my mind’s attention to YOUR wonder.
Yes, Ann. Make us awake and aware of your presence everywhere we turn, God.
Yes! I will join you! 🙂
It wouldn’t be the same without you, sweet Kathleen!
I’m in…Father, “Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.” Psalm 119:18
Amen– Love your prayer, Philip.
I would love to join the 21 Days of Wonder Challenge! Lord, my prayer is that you will help me to be more attuned to your presence in my daily routine and that you will help me to be still more often so that I may hear your wisdom and that my thoughts, actions, and reactions may emulate and glorify you.
Yes, Lord! May we all be willing to stop and listen for the words and wisdom you have to share with us. Thank you, Tammie!
Lord as we start this new year I want to take in the beauty and your wonder everyday! We are so blessed by this beautiful handy work everyday. Let us not forget to praise you.
Margaret thank you for your ministry. I live in Colo Springs, and as I drive to work everyday I am in awe of Pikes Peak. I never grow tired of that mountain, God Bless
May we both not forget to praise God in response to his wonders. Thanks for that reminder, Judy. Pikes Peak gets me everytime– amazing and gorgeous!
Lord, you are the God of Wonder…
Yes! Astound us once again with your wonders, God! Thanks, Roberta!
Dear Heavenly Father, I desire to find your wonder in the midst of all the craziness. To continue to be awestruck in the places you placed me & with the people you’ve put into my life. Amen.
In the midst of the chaos, may you stop us in our tracks with your wonderous self, oh God. Amen! Thanks, Suzie!
Please Lord place your hands around my face so my gaze is directly upon you..that you have my attention so I may be wonder struck like a child .Thank you Lord.
I love that image you describe, Elizabeth. In The Sacred Echo, I talk about being so focused on following Jesus that our foreheads are glued to His shoulder blades. May that be our posture, God!
Let me see the wonder in those I meet today… help me to love deeply.
Yes… help us to love the seemingly unlovable and show grace to those who seem unworthy. Amen!
i ask You Lord Jesus, to strike me with wonder until im #WONDERSTRUCK in awesome, new, amazing ways..i am already amazed by You daily..i ask this to be a time of You showing Yourself to me in ways i have never imagined!..i love You
Amen, Roxane! I am lifting up that same prayer on your behalf. May God continue to wow us with wonder upon wonder!
Even though I can’t believe that I could feel You even more deeply, Lord, I know I’ve but scratched the surface of your Wonder – full – ness. Don’t stop Lord. More! More opportunities to live for Your kingdom. More opportunities to walk out Your will for my life. More opportunities to sit and wait at Your feet. I am ever awed by you Lord. Never let me stop living #Wonderstruck.
Thank you Margaret! This should be fun – still waiting for your book … BN sez it still may be 30 days or more! YIKES!
Felecia, echoing your prayer. May God poke and prod you each day to awaken to his wonders! Excited to hear how God astounds you. Send any links to blog posts you write to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can read.
Good to go…even without the book in hand!
They are coming soon from Amazon and Barnes & Noble– promise!
Lord, awaken my senses to the wonder only you give. Empower me to help others glimpse your light. #LIVEWONDERSTRUCK
The prayer my spirit has been crying out for but that escaped my mind and my lips but when I heard it, a “YES” hit me hard; “Wonder; God, please restore my wonder in You!” I am starting late but I am starting!
It’s never to late. We’re so thrilled to have you join us. I’ve linked each day in this original post, cbgrace. Hopefully that makes it easier to partake in the 21 Days of Wonder. Can’t wait to hear what God reveals to you.
Shared the beginning of this journey with my friends and readers today. I anticipate God’s answer to a simple prayer for wonder!
so so pleased to be part of this intentional encouragement to #LIVEWONDERSTRUCK
may the message go far and wide. Thank you, Margaret, for innovating this creativity in expressing our reflections… luving it :))
You are the sweetest. Thank you for the encouragement! And for spreading the word to LIVEWONDERSTRUCK each and every day!
Wow, here I crammed 21 days of Wonder into 3 months! I may have taken a little longer to complete my 21 day challenge but I made it! I have been incredibly encouraged by the new reality of God I feel in my life as a result of this little word, Wonderstruck. It is just a conscious way of realizing I have a personal and intimate relationship with a Holy, omnipotent God! Thank you Margaret!
So happy to be Wonderstruck with all of you! Excited to see all that God is doing in all of us through each others eyes!
