Prayers of Promise: The Joys of Community: Remembrance

Can a woman forget her nursing child,
and not have compassion on the son of her womb?

Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget you.
See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands;
your walls are continually before Me.
Isaiah 49:15-16 NKJV
Reflect on this statement, inspired by today’s Scripture, and let it guide you into prayer:
May my children always be aware of how much they mean to You, how precious they are in Your sight, how tenderly You carry them in Your thoughts, and that their names are written on the palms of Your compassionate hands.
Prayer
Thank You, Father, for being a God of compassion who feels deeply and cares greatly for my family. Thank You that through Your compassion, my children can know Your inner feelings for each of them personally, sense Your tender touch upon them, see the riches of what Your heart holds for them, and experience the fullness of what Your love brings to them.
Father, I am amazed to realize that Your love for my children is even greater than the love I have for them and that the depth of Your feelings for them goes even deeper than what I hold for them. What a great comfort it is to know how much You care for them, and that they are always in Your thoughts.
May my children always be aware of how much they mean to You, how precious they are in Your sight, how tenderly You carry them in Your thoughts, and that their names are written on the palms of Your compassionate hands.
Thank You for being a God of compassion.
