PSALM 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. (NLT)
Father, You are my hiding place. When it’s hard to crawl out of bed in the morning because pain, grief, or just an overwhelming schedule make me want to hide, You are with me. You whisper Your sweet presence to my heart reminding me that I can come to You for strength and help. What an awesome blessing. Forgive me for the days I jump out of bed quickly believing I can manage the day on my own. I can be so foolish. I’m sorry. Thank you for giving me this day to do with You. Lead me, Father. Help me. Make me strong. Amen.
ISAIAH 12:2 Look! God is my Savior. I am confident and unafraid because the Lord is my strength and my song. He is my Savior. (GW)
Father, Savior, Knowing and loving You should be enough. I pray these words … “I am confident and unafraid.” Oh, how I want them to be true. Some days it is but others, like today, I’m weak and tired and yes, even a little afraid. Forgive me. Please help me. And I remember all You have done for me. You are my Savior. You are all I need. And You have blessed me with courage and strength in the past. So, I surrender this day to You, trusting You to go before me and make me strong one moment at a time. Thank you. Amen.
PSALM 121:2 My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! (NLT)
Father, You are Creator. You watch over all You have made. And you watch over me. You are my helper. You lift my head giving me courage and strength when I’m weak and overwhelmed. I believe no problem is too great for You to intervene and none is so small that You do not care. You are full of love and compassion. I need You, Lord. Please help me as I face the day ahead. Amen.
