Today I need an extra measure of faith. Lord, will you grant that to me?
I need to trust your goodness and mercy. Abba, will you help me?
I need to remember that you do not treat me as my sins deserve. I haven’t earned your compassion. You have freely bestowed it on me. My God, will you reveal that to my heart?
Today I must put my confidence in the steady and constant strength of the Lord of Hosts. Father, will you carry me?
I desire the love and comfort that one feels only in the arms of a good shepherd. Jesus, embrace me.
God is my refuge and strength, a every-present help in trouble
Therefore I will not fear, through the earth give way
Though the mountains fall into the heart of the sea
Though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging
The Lord Almighty is with me; the God of Jacob is my fortress
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God”
(From Psalm 46)
