Father God, allow me to walk within the circle of your will and favor. Forgive me where I fail you. Lift me out of my pity parties and into the warmth of your grasp. You bless the times I share with others, and you fill the void when I am lonely. You are El Roi, the God who sees me, knows my weaknesses and strengths, and loves me in spite of myself. I bring my praises to your mercy seat in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Now the boy Samuel continued to grow both in stature and in favor with the Lord and also with man.” (1 Samuel 2: 26 ESV)
