"I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore
I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, 'The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.'" (Lamentations 3:20-24)
Oh Lord, you see my heart. Your compassion is great as you know the sorrow within me. Thank you for the hope you give. You are all that I need! I am waiting upon you, Lord, knowing that you have great love for me and for all your people. I am trusting you, for you are forever faithful. I will not be consumed, because you are with me! Thank you, Father, for the strength and the power you give when we call upon your name.
Through Christ our Lord, amen.
