Prayer

Unchanging God

Why are you so far away when I groan for help? (Psalm 22:1; NLT).

He is close to those who trust in him (Nahum 1:7; NLT).

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18; NIV).

“I am the Lord, and I do not change” (Malachi 3:6; NLT).

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).

“The whole earth is filled with his glory!” (Isaiah 6:3; NLT).

In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind  (Job 12:10; NIV).


Father,
There are days
When you seem
Very far away;

And days when you’re as close
As breathing,
Closer than my heartbeat.

But,
In fact,
You never change at all:

You are within me,
And around me,
All the time,

Filling the world,
And holding my life
In your hands.
