But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
--2 Peter 3:8 New International Version (NIV)
My Father, I pray that when the "sun sets today my hope may not set with it." Be with me earlier than the dawn, that I may plan a new day with you. I pray that you will release me from anything that keeps me from reaching the highest. Amen.
For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
--Psalm 36:9 New International Version (NIV)
My Father, I would pray that my sense of gloom may not be more than your grace. May the glorious light of your love break through my disheartened soul, and reveal the sincerity of your promises, that I may be happy in your care. Amen.
Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan, the heights of Hermon – from Mount Mizar.
Loving Father, forbid that I should be lonesome, and forget you are my friend. And may I not pass over your mercies while waiting for your compassion. Help me to find contentment in the inheritances of the earth, where I may always draw from you. Amen.
"Through Christ and scriptures, you will find hope and redemption."
