Almighty, benevolent Father, You are the God who sings over me. You call me by my name to be of your household. You know my every need. You meet me in the darkness and walk with me on the lighted pathway. You encourage me at my weakest times and root for me when I am strong. You are closer to me than even my children, because You know the inner working of my thoughts and beliefs. I am made in your image, redeemed as your child and living to honor You. I praise your faithfulness in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.” (Psalm 30: 4-5 ESV)
