Oh, Lord, no one knows my heart like you do. No one touches it to the depths of my soul like you do. Nothing can be hidden from you. The openness and closeness of our relationship cannot be matched. The sacred space between us is my greatest joy and peace. You forgive all my failings. You fill all the voids and mend all the tears in the fabric of my being. I lift my eyes to the hills of your loving kindness for your name’s sake and authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.’” (1 Samuel 16:7 ESV)
