“A Prayer For Assurance Of God’s Love”

August 26, 2020

Father, the Psalmist in Psalm 42 describes the rushing and heaving and restless waters as though they were the deep unending sorrows of his soul. Sometimes we describe our circumstance as floods of tears or oceans of sorrows because we feel like we’re drowning in grief much like the Psalmist. But after painting a very dismal picture, he reminds us of how we can be uplifted even while our soul is downcast and disturbed. Though circumstances may be grim we’re reminded to put our hope in You, not in the circumstance or its outcome. Your steadfast love never ceases and Your mercies never end but are renewed day by day. Great is Your faithfulness! By day You direct Your love toward us, at night Your song is with us, so we offer our prayer of thanksgiving to You, our God and faithful Father. Amen.
