Dear heavenly Father, we thank You and praise You for Your great love. Because of Your great love, we are not consumed. How great it is that Your compassions never fail! Your faithfulness is new every morning! Great is Your faithfulness! Therefore we say, “The Lord is our portion, we will wait for Him.”
O Father Lord, teach us to receive our portion, teach us to wait. Teach us to number our days, teach us to look to You every morning. Teach us to look beyond our past, teach us to set our eyes on Jesus every morning! Teach us to keep moving and teach us to receive all that You have for us in waiting, in expectation, in faith and in strength, and with open hands and open hearts. Thank You, Jesus, the one who had died for us even when we were still his enemy. Amen.
(A prayer based on Lam 3:22-24)
