“I love the LORD, for He heard my voice; He heard my cry for mercy. Because He turned His ear to me, I will call on Him as long as I live. The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came over me; I was overcome by distress and sorrow. Then I called on the Name of the LORD: “LORD, save me!” The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. The LORD protects the unwary; when I was brought low, He saved me. Return to your rest, my soul, for the LORD has been good to you. For you, LORD, have delivered me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the LORD in the land of the living. I trusted in the LORD when I said, “I am greatly afflicted”; in my alarm I said, “Everyone is a liar.” What shall I return to the LORD for all his goodness to me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD.” Psalm 116:1-13 (NIV)
Dear God Almighty,
We are unwary no more! We see destruction, but call upon your Name! We fear for our lives, but we have Someone to run to! We have made a mess of things, but have a Redeemer! It is You and only You who are standing when everything else is falling apart!
Lead us through these troubled times. Use the trouble for Your Own ends! Create a vocal people who call upon Your Name and drink the cup of salvation You offer.
Blaze Your path through this world for us to follow. We will revel in the joy of Salvation that made us central to all You do! With cup in hand we call, “Lead on Savior God!”
In Jesus Name Forever
