April 17 – Evening


For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.

(Hosea 6:6)


Dear God,

You desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of You rather than burnt offerings. I pray that I may always remember this verse and strive to live a life of mercy and love, rather than just going through the motions of religious practices. Help me to truly acknowledge You and seek to know Your heart, so that I may honor You in all that I do. Guide me in showing mercy to others, and in seeking a deeper relationship with You.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
