Thank you for always hearing your children. Forgive us when we leave you out of our lives, when we don’t seek your counsel.
Help us to always remember what great benefits there are for those who pray. We readily admit, O, gracious Lord, one of the reasons why we do not pray as we ought is because we often believe we are capable of directing our own steps when the truth is when we think such things we make grave mistakes.
Thank you for allowing us to come before you with everything that burdens us. Thank you for caring for us by giving us your kind ear and your counsel.
Oh, Lord, we do not deserve your grace and your love, but we are thankful for it.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
