40 Days of Prayer to Change America

The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing. —Zephaniah 3:17

I lived under crushing condemnation as I struggled under the misconception that God had judged me as a failure. Yet God was not focused on my failures; He saw the value of my sincere, yet failed, desire to please Him. He was delighting in me.


Thank You, Father, for looking beyond my failure to my heart. I really do long to do Your will. Teach me how to do it, and reveal Your plan for my life. I am Yours, Lord, all Yours. Use me any way You desire. Amen.

I was only beginning to understand His affection for me,
even in the midst of my spiritual failure and immaturity.
