Father, I thank you for being there for me when I am uncertain and afraid. Thank you that you love me and assure me that whatever happens you are by my side. I know that sometimes I let you down, and for those times I'm sorry and ask your forgiveness. I wish I were stronger, but sometimes I just feel so weak. I am so thankful that you brought me to a church family who loves me and patiently teaches me. I have learned to trust them and can ask questions and make comments without fear of rejection or judgement. Please help me to never lose sight of what a blessing you have given me.
Father, I don't feel good tonight. I know my problems are minor compared to so many others...even others in my congregation. But I need your comfort tonight. I need you to put your loving arms around me as a good father would hug his child. I know we're not supposed to go by feelings, but I just need to feel your love tonight. I need to know I'm okay with you.
