Samson prayed to God one last time for the strength that had left him so that he might honor God one last time before he died. It is in times of our failures that we need to remember that a failure is an event not a person. God forgave Samson and returned his strength. Samson was able to kill more Philistines when he died than when he was living.  We will all face significant regret in our life but we must remember to get back up and serve the Lord because God has not abandoned us.
