O Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress.
What would I do without God’s grace? Many, many times I have not received what I deserve and it’s because God was gracious towards me.
I pray for the prodigal to long for the Lord; long to be in His presence and have His activity in their lives. As they begin to recognize His love for them and His mercy towards them, that longing should grow. Before they start their day, I pray they recognize that the very breath they breathe is given by Him; may they come to daily depend on His strength and salvation.
