This morning I give you praise. Praise for your all-knowing, ever-present existence. In you and you alone was everything I know to be true and everything I will never understand, created. You spoke and it was. You speak and it is.
I give you thanks for your unending mercies that our mine every morning…if I choose to live in them. For immeasurable grace I don’t deserve, but you supply anyway. Gratitude for all that I have because you have provided. You alone. Not I. But you.
I ask forgiveness for my pride that daily asserts itself and tempts me to forget Whose I am. To Whom I owe my life. My everything. I truly do need you every hour, as the song implies. I need you every second of every day, as I often forget. Father, forgive me.
Today I want to intentionally remember You. Remember Who created me. Remember Who died for me. Remember that you have placed people, little people, in my life for training and equipping for your purposes. I pray that through your Word and Holy Spirit I will be able to make a step in the right direction. Just today. I need your help. Today.
In the Blessed name of Jesus I offer this prayer,
Lamentations 3:22 (ESV)
22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;[a]
his mercies never come to an end;
