Pursue and Recover All


You are great and greatly to be praised. Power and might belong to You alone. You are the Almighty God, the Holy One of Israel. Sovereign Creator, You see and know all things. We are in awe of Your goodness, sovereignty, and Your mercy. You are great and deserve our praise. The heavens declare Your glory and the skies proclaim the work of Your hands. The rocks will cry out, proclaiming Your goodness, if we fail to do so. May we never fall short giving You praises, honor, and glory and may we never start a prayer unto You without examining our own hearts so we may come to you holy, spotless, and blameless.

King David was a warrior and man after Your own heart and I love that he felt his heart laid safe when it was broken before You. It says in Chapter 30 of 1 Samuel that he and his men “wept until they had no more strength to weep.” He and others unimaginably lost their wives, children, and their fullness of life to their enemy. David cried out to You for relief and Your ears heard. You commanded “pursue and recover all” and were faithful to go before Him and deliver exceedingly abundantly more than David could ever imagine. Father, would you do the very same for my friends who have been wounded by loss? Would you grant those who need mercy and a second chance to re-do something they regret? Will you give my friend a battle plan to recover all? Would You grant them the relief they need this day? Bless them with wholeness, restored health, and a healed heart.

Do this Father to strengthen them for their Kingdom work.

Father, may we depend on prayer and Your divine powers rather than connections, yesterday’s spiritual life, or bank deposits to get us through. May we be trusted like the disciples in turning the world upside-down by being about the Father’s business. May we be a trusted, chosen, servant, and friend to You. May we be wise to sow seeds of love, operate with child-like faith, be bold and courageous, guard our hearts from evil, and like King David; may we lead with Your very heart. May we be known as redeemed and restored children of God who pursued hard after You and Your very heart. May we then find our hearts stolen and captivated by Your devoted love, abundant care, mercy abound, provision, protection, great wisdom and matchless heart. We promise in turn to touch the world with Your great and perfect love. A love I pray my friend is smothered in this day!

In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!
Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
