Heavenly Father, Thank you that you see us right where we are,
in the midst of our pain and struggle, in the middle of our desert land.
Thank you that you have not forgotten us and never will.
Forgive us for not trusting you, for doubting your goodness,
or not believing you’ re really there.
We choose to set our eyes on you today.
We choose joy and peace when the whispered lies come
and say that we should have no joy or peace.
