Almighty and Holy God, thank you for your promises. Thank you for having them written and preserved to challenge us, encourage us and comfort us. You are near, as close as the whispered prayer. May those with difficulty in their health, finances, relationships and emotions call on you. Father, answer for the sake of your name. I ask in the precious name and authority of Jesus, whom you heard and strengthened at his darkest hour, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.” (Psalm 145: 18 ESV)
