Proverbs 15:12-24, Psalm 101-103

Psalm 103:17-18 – But from eternity to eternity the LORD’s faithful love is toward those who fear him, and his righteousness toward the grandchildren of those who keep his covenant.

Lord God, I am but a vapor and a breath.  I am but dust and ashes. I am faithless.  My focus lasts but a moment even though I want it to last much longer.  I can’t even finish the Lord’s Prayer without distraction.  But you, Lord, God are faithful to me without ceasing.  Forever is the only way to describe your faithfulness to me.  Your eyes and your ears, yes, even your heart are tuned to me because you love me.  Your love and righteousness are even turned toward my children and whatever grandchildren you may give me.  My ability to love them suffers greatly because of my frailty.  Oh God, I depend on you.  I can’t be and do what you want me to be and do.  Save me.  Forgive me.  Never turn your back on me, I pray.  Stay true to who you are and keep turning to me; and then, keep turning me back to you in repentance all the days of my life. Just as you stay true to who you are, keep turning me back to stay true to you. Amen.
