The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust.

Ps 18:2 NKJV

I turn to my God
Who loves me,
Who saves me,
Who lifts my head
In times of trouble,
Who blesses me
And strengthens me.

His love and
Sweet songs of joy
Strengthen my inner being,
Give me hope and confidence
In the future.
I am not alone,
My God is with me.

My God surrounds me
with songs of deliverance,
My God saves.
While storms blast around me
I am secure.
My dwelling place is my God
And he will deliver me.

God of mercy and compassion, You are our strength and refuge. You meet us in Jesus in the depth of our need.  Help us to trust and not be afraid.  May the healing love of the risen Christ bring your strength, hope, peace and rest. We lift before you in prayer anyone you have placed on our hearts today, in Jesus’ powerful and precious name. Amen.
