Praying from Matthew 12:4 relating to Obedience, Mercy, Authority

Dear God, we come before you humbly and ask for forgiveness for the times we have knowingly or unknowingly disobeyed your laws. We pray that you help us to always seek your will and follow your commands. Just as David entered your house and ate the show bread, we ask that you give us the strength to resist temptation and always choose what is right in your eyes. May we never take for granted the privilege of being in your presence and may we always honor you as our High Priest. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Verse: how he entered into God’s house and ate the show bread, which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests?
Matthew 12:4

This is a Command. The verse commands the reader not to eat the show bread, which is only lawful for the priests.
