Lord, I’ve surely given You reason to turn me away, but You faithfully keep your promise never to leave me, nor to forsake me. Bring me into humility as I recognize your greatness and grace. Open my heart to a sigh in acceptance of your loving kindness, knowing the vast difference in your holiness and my striving for such. Help me to be more like You today. Honor my steps and order my time in your name and authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul. I cried to him with my mouth, and high praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. But truly God has listened; he has attended to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me!” (Psalm 66: 16-20 ESV)
