You are here, even, or especially, in the silence. Your love encompasses round about me. Thank you.
Thank you for not leaving me to my sinful desires or coping mechanisms. Thank you for being persistent and being my hiding place in times of stress. Thank you for orchestrating every complex system in my body.
Forgive me, Father, for the ways I’ve sinned against You, for the methods I’ve used to grieve Your Holy Spirit. Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me. Restore to me the joy of salvation.
I can do nothing apart from You. Please continue to lead and guide me, and order my steps. I want to love You and obey You. Please help me in both endeavors. Thank you for Your grace, mercy, and unfailing, never-ending love.
In Jesus’s name,
