You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.  - Psalm 139:1-4

Dear Heavenly Father, so often I wonder if I am alone.  I cannot see you and I have never heard your voice.  But then I see in your word that you are intimately involved in every move I make.  You see me all day and all night.  You know my thoughts and words before I do.  I find comfort in knowing that you know me so well.  I cannot hide anything from you.  Help me to remember that when I am tempted to sin or to doubt your loving care.  You knew everything about me and still chose to redeem me in your Son.  How can that be?  It's what makes you so amazing to me.  I want to make you happy with my thoughts, words and actions.  Help me be pleasing in your sight today. Give me someone new to encourage as well.  AMEN
