These all look to you, to give them their food in due season. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are filled with good things–Psalm 104:27, 28
Make us increasingly aware Father, that You are with us in this life: that You feed us from Your hand. That You are perfectly aware of our needs, our pain, our struggles. You are never removed from our lives but always close, always rejoicing with us in victory and triumphs, always sorrowing with us over sin, and brokenness. Always sending Your Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth and set us on the right path when we are confused or misdirected. Always touching us to heal our wounds, whatever they may be. Always helping us with the things that could so easily overwhelm us. Always fixing and mending, closing and renewing. Always loving us, no matter how good or bad we are. Always being our Father and never disowning us—not even if we disown You for a time! Always helping us grow closer to You and revealing Your word to us for our maturity and faith. Always keeping our eternal good in mind and helping us to remember the important things of life.
As we begin our days, let us end our days: in You. As we begin our week, may we end our weeks: in You. As we begin our years let us end our years: in You! As we begin any season: be it sickness, sorrow, trial, or joy, youth or old age, marriage or singleness, parenthood or empty-nest, may we end them as we began: in You…
May each cross of our life be carried with grace and help us to see the blessing instead of focusing on the burden. In the morning cause Your face to shine upon us and at night bless our ears with Your song.
Lord, you are our constant Friend, Provider, Protector, Redeemer, Strength and Comfort and may we be satisfied in You alone. In Jesus’ name,
