God’s Faithfulness

The other day I posted about how God helped me through a tough writing assignment. Today I’d like to share one of the prayer devotionals I wrote for that assignment. Not surprisingly, it was about God’s faithfulness.

When I want to thank God for His faithfulness . . .

Even when we are too weak to have any faith left, [Christ] remains faithful to us and will help us, for he cannot disown us who are part of himself, and he will always carry out his promises to us. —2 Timothy 2:13

. . . I will pray.

Most Trustworthy Father,

I used to think I could depend on others to help me through the tough times, but lately You’ve shown me that the only one I can trust in is You. Any time I’m feeling lonely, frustrated, discouraged, weak, or tired, I can count on You for comfort and encouragement.

More than anyone else, You know and understand my struggles, and You’re always here to encourage me. I look to You now, Lord, for what only You can give me during this time of trial.

Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed that all I can do is close my eyes and whisper Your name. I imagine Your arms surrounding me like a warm blanket, soothing me, keeping me safe. No one else is herebut You. You’re always here, loving me through all the days of my life.

And, Lord, I commit my family and friends to Your faithful care as well. I know they love me, but they’re only human. They fail me at times, just as I fail them. You are the only constant in our world. You are everlastingly faithful.

Amen.
