Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of Habakkuk and for the truths that we can learn. I acknowledge that, like Israel, we have gone astray and wandered far from You. We have left our first love and flirted with the world. Forgive us, Lord. Purify Your Church and restore to us the joy of our salvation. Keep us faithfully looking to Christ and living by faith, for You alone are our strength and our salvation. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
