Prayer for 2 Samuel 7:8

“"Now this is what you are to say to My servant David: 'This is what the Lord of Hosts says: I took you from the pasture and from following the sheep to be ruler over My people Israel.”

Dear heavenly Father, thank You that You are our God and Shepherd, our Provider and our Sanctifier. Thank You that You are the Lord of Hosts. Who made heaven and earth by the power of Your mighty hand, and that You chose me to be Your child and a member of Christ's mystic body. Thank You for the lessons we learn through the life and times of David... whom You chose to be Israel's greatest king and the under-shepherd of Your people. Thank You that You can use anyone whose heart is right before You. Cleanse my heart and use me I pray in the furtherance of Your kingdom and help me to listen to Your voice and obey Your word - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
