Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore! Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth.   Psalm 105:4,5

When we pray, we go to the Source of our strength. God is our help, our hope, our joy, our rock, our everything. During this Lenten season I hope you have found this to be true in your life. Think back over the weeks, months, and years, and remember his marvelous works in your life and in the lives of your loved ones and friends. Maybe that marvelous work was forgiveness or reassurance of his love. Perhaps it was a healing, physical or otherwise. A new job, a restored relationship, an extra dose of grace during a difficult time, and an endless list of other things that can be called marvelous works. When we pray, we seek his strength, but we are to also seek him; we are to seek his face. If we can get just a glimpse of him, that is the most marvelous and wonderful thing of all.

Heavenly Father, we need your strength at all times. In your mercy, you grant us strength when we but humble ourselves and pray. May we never wait until we are depleted of strength before we seek you, but may we seek you always that we might remain strong. As a lamp needs a power source to shine, remind us often that you are the our source of power. Remind us that it is through prayer that we stay connected to you. We thank you for your marvelous works, your glorious wonders, and your life-changing words in our lives. Amen.
