Psalm 78:1-4  Give ear, O my people, to my instruction. Turn your ear to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth to share a lesson. I will speak about puzzling problems from long ago, things we have heard and known, things our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their descendants. We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders that he has done. Dear Heavenly Father, I love…

Psalm 28:7-9 The Lord is my strength and my shield. In him, my heart trusts, and I am helped. My heart also celebrates. With my song, I will give thanks to him. The Lord is their strength. He is a stronghold of salvation for his anointed king. Save your people, and bless the people that belong to you. Shepherd them, and carry them forever. Dear Heavenly Father, Our strength comes from you, just as David has said in this Psalm. It is not only this world…

2 Peter 1:19-21 We also have the completely reliable prophetic word. You do well to pay attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the Morning Star rises in your hearts, since we know this above all else: No prophecy of Scripture comes about from someone’s own interpretation. In fact, no prophecy ever came by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were being carried along by…

Malachi 2:10  Don’t we all have one Father? Hasn’t one God created us? Dear Heavenly Father, You have created every person. The devil wants to confuse the world, creating divisions, highlighting each other’s differences as evil, rather than seeing the uniqueness you made in each person. He tries to push any and every narrative that stirs up anger and resentment because of differences. He wants to cause chaos, whispering, “others are judging you because you are different.” Lord, you placed…

Matthew 28:20 [Jesus said] “And surely I am with you always until the end of the age.” Dear Lord Jesus, Your words give us great comfort that no matter where we are at, you are with us also. You spoke these words just before you ascended into heaven and departed this world; you gave your disciples instructions to go out into the world and share the gospel with others. Often this seems like a daunting task; we fear what people will…

Psalm 100:5   For the Lord is good. His mercy endures forever. His faithfulness continues through all generations. Dear Heavenly Father, You are our good and gracious God. While we know you are good, we do not know the extent of your goodness because of our sinful nature. You daily provide for all people surrounding the globe with the food they need. But it is more than just sustaining our physical needs; you provide for our spiritual as well. Your mercy, we…

Matthew 5:45 For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. Dear Heavenly Father, When you bless the earth and those in it, everyone receives the blessing of your goodness. The sun comes up every morning for everyone to enjoy. You bring the sun and rain, so the crops grow; while we are here on this earth, believers and unbelievers are equally blessed with food and drink.…

Malachi 3:6 I, the Lord, do not change.  Dear Heavenly Father, There is great comfort knowing that you do not change. Life’s tides seem to be changing daily; as we continue to grow older, the world appears to continue to devolve with its evil alterations. Each day social media and the news bring more stories and highlight the wicked swell of this sinful world; its degradation flourishes, creating more evilness. That should seem to be a shock, but in your word,…

Psalm 90:1-2  Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born, before you gave birth to the earth and the world, from eternity to eternity, you are God. Dear Heavenly Father, Through you, we find our eternal resting place, with you in our permanent home. Lord, while we are here on earth, we are wanderers, nomads like Abraham, and we contend with the ways of this temporary world. But our last day here will…

2 Corinthians 13:14  The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Dear Heavenly Father, It is impressive that you would love us, people. Nothing in us deserves to be blessed with your love, and despite who we are, still, you love us. You sent your Son to this world so that he could take on human flesh and become our brother. He lived perfectly then…
