DEAR FATHER, MY GOD...
By Synthia Esther
I know God, you made the world and everything in it.
And you are not far from your children.
In you I live and have my being.
You have searched me, and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise up.
You are familiar with all my ways.
You know the very hairs on my head - for they are numbered by you.
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
You made me in your image, provided a help mate to love, and called us very good.
Genesis 1:27, Genesis 1:31, Genesis 2:21-22
You made and provided abundant food and substance.
You give all humanity life and breath, and everything else.
In you I live and move and have my being.
I am your offspring.
You knew me even before I was conceived, your eyes saw my unformed body.
Jeremiah 1:4-5, Psalm 139:16
You created my inmost being: you knit me in my mother's womb.
I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
You brought me forth on the day that I was born.
All my days are ordained by you, even before one of them came to be.
You determined the times set for me and where I should live.
In you I was chosen, predistined according to your plan.
You are God's only Son...who gave his life that I might live.
You knew no sin, yet became sin's atoning sacrifice, so that in you I am might become the righteousness of God.
2 Corinthians 5:21, 1st John 4:10
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, can separate me from your love.
By confessing and believing in your death and resurrection, I am saved.
You are patient, not wanting anyone to perish, but come to repentance.
2nd Peter 3:9
You provided my redemption, the forgiveness of sin through your blood.
Ephesians 1:7, Colossians 1:14
Salvation is found in no one but you Lord.
The gift of God is eternal life in you - Christ Jesus.
Your compassions never fail, for they are new every morning.
You are good to those whose hope is in you.
It is by your grace through faith that I am saved.
In you I am a new creation.
2nd Corinthians 5:17
I am your workmanship, created in you to do good works.
I am strengthened with all power according to your glorious might.
You meet all my needs according to your glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
I can do everything through you who gives me strength.
You Father, are the light of the world.
You are the gate; and whoever enters through you will be saved.
Therefore let me hold firmly to the faith I profess.
For those who obey your commands live in you, and you in them.
You God - are love.
1st John 4:16
How great is your love, and how you lavish your love on your children.
1st John 3:1
Nothing can separate me from your love.
You heavenly Father are perfect.
And everyone who has hope in you purifies himself.
1st John 3:1
Every good gift I receive comes from you.
You give wisdom generously upon my asking.
You are my provider.
Your plan for me and all your children is filled with hope and a future.
You watch over your me.
You save me from the fowler's snare, that no harm will befall me.
You make my enemies a footstool for my feet.
Your love is everlasting.
Your thoughts toward me are precious and vast, as vast as grains of sand.
You rejoice over me with singing and seek only to do good unto me.
Zephaniah 3:17, Jeremiah 32:40-41
I call and you answer me, showing me great things I did not know.
You show love towards my children for a thousand generations.
You Lord Jesus Christ, are the Father of compassion and all comfort.
2nd Corinthians 1:3
You Lord love the just, and you will not forsake your faithful ones.
As I delight in you, you give me the desires of my heart.
You do more for me than I could have ever possibly imagine.
You are my greatest encourager.

You comfort me in all my troubles.
2nd Corinthians 1:3-4
You turn that which would harm me, around for your good.
When I am brokenhearted, you are close by my side.
As a shepherd carries a lamb, you have carried me close to your heart.
You Holy Father are for me, not against me.
You work out all things for the good of those who love you.
For you are a God of peace, not disorder.
1st Corinthians 14:33
You Lord are gracious, compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.
Your Kingdom is everlasting, you are faithful to all your promises, loving towards all you have made.
Great is your faithfulness.
What a mighty God I serve!
