“For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness.” Hebrews 12:10
Abba, our Father most high and most holy. You are the only best father we can ever have. You provide for our needs and protect us from harm. You are always there for us. The best thing is that you prepare us for the future. You know what is best for us. Likewise, you know our strength and weakness for you are the one who created us. We go through life with ups and downs. We are not afraid to fall in trying to cope up with life’s challenges because we know that you will raise us up again. We are not afraid to walk in the valley of death because you are the light that gives us hope to keep us going. In the coldness of night, your love for us keeps us warm. Your embrace gives us peace and comfort. Please forgive us of our transgressions. If we are lost and do not know what to do, hold our hands and restore us. Let us see your love and care when you use your rod and your staff to straighten us up in our walk. May we accept your will when we suffer because of our sins. They are reminders for us that we have to go back to you, repent and mend our ways. Amen.
