Praying from Matthew 14:9. Themes: Obedience, Consequences, Loyalty.
Dear Lord, help us to always uphold our promises and commitments, even when it may cause us grief. Give us the strength to honor our word and not break our oaths, even in difficult situations. May we always consider the impact of our actions on those around us, and may we act with integrity and honor. Amen.
Verse: The king was grieved, but for the sake of his oaths and of those who sat at the table with him, he commanded it to be given,
This is a Command. The king commanded for something to be given, despite his grief and the presence of others at the table. The verse does not provide specific details about what was commanded to be given.
