1 Samuel 16:7

1 Passage: 1 Samuel 16:7

1 Verse: Verse 7. But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."

1 Prayer:
Father, please forgive me for focusing so much more effort on my outward appearance than on the condition of my heart. Forgive me for trying to look good on the outside, while barely keeping it together on the inside. Forgive me also for judging others by outward appearance and not seeing them as You see us all. Please teach me how to see others through Your eyes. Help me to look for the hearts of those around me. And please help me to guard my own heart, rather than just my reputation.
