A Prayer for God’s Steadfast Love and Mercy [Inspired by Lamentations 3]

Heavenly Father,
As I go through my day, help me to remember that your steadfast love never ends, and that your mercies are new every morning. Hallelujah! Great is your faithfulness! Thank you for your steadfast love, which you so perfectly displayed at the cross. And thank you for offering me tender mercy instead of judgement. Because of you, I can wake up each morning free of guilt or shame, and walk in newness of life. I lean on your love and mercy today to see me through whatever comes my way. To you be the glory forever and ever!
Amen

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23
