40 Days of Prayer – Day Forty
He is Faithful
“They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
Lamentations 3:23 (NIV)
God has given Tates Creek Christian Church a vision for the future. As we have explored 40 days of prayer in pursuit of this dream, we have found Him to be a faithful promise keeper. Today’s devotional is dedicated to praising the Lord for this aspect of His character.
Praise Him using this wonderful old hymn:
“Great Is Thy Faithfulness”
(Text by Thomas 0. Chisholm. Music by William M. Runyan.)
Great is Thy faithfulness, 0 God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou has been Thou forever wilt be.
Summer and winter, and spring-time and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
Great is Thy faithfulness! Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
