Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
—II Corinthians 1:3-4 (New International Version)
Dearest Abba Father, we adore You for what You are. We acknowledge and bow before Your supreme authority over everything seen and unseen. We thank You and praise You for the life you have given us. We thank You for all the blessings we can readily see and for all the blessings our limited understanding cannot recognize. Who can fully understand the depth of your love toward us? You are indeed arrested by Your love for us. This fact gives us lots of confidence to come before You even when we are totally messed up. You will never turn away whoever seeks you in faith. Your mercy draws us near to you. Even when we lose you, You never lose us. We are always held by righteous right hand. Your love will never fail us. Sustain us today with Your grace that our strength and courage may not fail in the face of difficulties that might come in our way. Always put us in remembrance that Your grace is more than sufficient to be victorious in all situations and let us find rest in You. Heal us of our stress, anger, all our bodily ailments and unfruitfulness in every sphere of our lives according to Your will. We ask this in the matchless name of Jesus Christ so that He be glorified through us. Amen
