Evening Prayer ~ God Loves Us!

Prayer is gratitude

You are the apple of God’s eye.

The idea that someone or something is a most prized possession, like the apple that is the best in the bunch, is found in the Bible five times. This is how God sees His chosen ones, and this is how we should see God and His Word. We are His prize, and He is ours.1

Our Evening Prayer reminds you that you are the apple of God’s eye. His much-loved child. You mean more to Him than you will ever understand . . . until you reach the joy of heaven, that is. Then you will meet Jesus face-to-face and experience the full-blown love He has for you.

Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.2

Psalm 17:8
