Father, we are often so slow to turn back to you, please shake us out of our lethargy to see the good and faithful God that you are. When all seems dark and confusing help us to find our resting place in you. Lord, please build up our faith and make us ones who cling to you. We are lost without you. We rejoice in Christ who was unwavering in his righteousness, knowing that we are united with him. Keep us confident in our hope, knowing it is secure in him.
