Dear Heavenly Father, we come before you humbly, acknowledging our need for your grace and mercy. We confess that at times we struggle with unbelief, doubting your promises and questioning your power. We ask for forgiveness for our lack of faith and pray that you would strengthen our trust in you. Help us to rely on your word and to believe in your goodness, even in the face of trials and difficulties. Lord, we pray that you would open our eyes to see the truth and beauty of your salvation, and that you would fill our hearts with unwavering faith. May we never be counted among those who die in unbelief, but instead may we experience the fullness of your love and grace. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
