Into the midst of this dark, hopeless, watching, yearning world, our story begins.


My Prayer to God

Lord, thank You for speaking to us through Your Word and Your prophets. It strengthens my faith to read of the many things that were prophesied in Your Word which have already come to pass. I know this means that every promise in Your Word will be fulfilled. Thank You for always keeping Your promises. I pray that I will not be like the people in Isaiah’s time who would not humble themselves before You and listen. And I don’t want to be like the people Micah spoke to who refused to obey You. Nor do I want to be like the people who heard Jeremiah’s prophecy but didn’t have faith enough to believe it. Instead, I humble myself before You this day and ask that You would help me to clearly hear and understand Your instructions to me. Enable me to fully know Your laws and obey them. Give me ever-increasing faith to believe that Your promises are true. Help me to see all the promises to me in Your Word so that I can claim them, stand strong in them, and rest in You as I wait for them to be fulfilled in my life.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

God ’s Promise to Me

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

—ROMANS 10:17
