Loving God, I thank you that you have promised that you will never leave me nor forsake me. Although my heart feels distant and cold, I know that you are by my side. I ask that your presence would soften my heart. I praise you that you have redeemed me from death through your wonderful love. Like a shepherd you lead me and provide for me, I ask that you would supply everything I need in this situation. In the light of your awesome presence, I pray that my lips would declare your glory. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
