Lord Jesus, strengthen my resolve and faith to follow you with a commitment as solid as Ruth’s to Naomi. May others see you in me as I go about my daily walk. Forgive me where I fail you, Lord. Put my feet on the way you want me to go. Your Holy Spirit is my guide and teacher. My flesh may fail, but He will never fail. I lift my praise in your name above all names and authority greater than any other, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“But Ruth said, ‘Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the Lord do so to me and more also if anything but death parts me from you.’ And when Naomi saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more.” (Ruth 1: 16-18 ESV)
