Father in Heaven, I come to your throne in thanksgiving for my brothers and sisters, family and friends who come along side me to encourage and strengthen me. Grant me the ability to pass that gift along to others. Let me be your 2nd Corinthian servant and give back the comfort with which you have blessed me. I don’t want to pass up the chance to uplift the soul you put in front of me who needs it right then. Forgive me when I fail you and miss the opportunity. I pray in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“And Jonathan, Saul’s son, rose and went to David at Horesh, and strengthened his hand in God. And he said to him, ‘Do not fear, for the hand of Saul my father shall not find you. You shall be king over Israel, and I shall be next to you. Saul my father also knows this.’ And the two of them made a covenant before the Lord. David remained at Horesh, and Jonathan went home.” (1 Samuel 23: 16-18 ESV)
