Prayer for Ruth 1:20

“"Don't call me Naomi. Call me Mara," she answered, "for the Almighty has made me very bitter.”

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for all that You have taught me from this simple story in the book of Ruth. Forgive me for the times I have acted like Naomi and stepped outside of Your will for my life and found myself in deep distress and defeated. Thank You that You are the good Shepherd Who searches for Your sheep, whenever we wander far away and thank You that You are our kinsman-Redeemer. We praise and thank You for the incredible privilege we are afforded as Your people and the radiant joy that is ours when we abide in Christ and He in us. Thank You that all Your ways are pleasant, and all Your paths are peace, in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
