Dear Heavenly Father, we come before you in awe of your unchanging nature. We thank you for being a God who remains the same yesterday, today, and forever. We acknowledge that our understanding of you is limited, but we trust in your immutability. Help us to deepen our knowledge and contemplation of your unchanging character. May we find comfort and assurance in your faithfulness, especially in times of trials and challenges. We pray that you would strengthen our faith and enable us to trust in your plans and promises. Thank you for the privilege of being called your children and experiencing the benefits of your unchanging love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
