Leviticus 27:14-Numbers 1:54;  Mark 11:1-25;  Psalm 46:1-11;  Proverbs 10:23″

“God is our refuge and strength,

an ever-present help in trouble.

Therefore, we will not fear, though the

earth give way

and the mountains fall into the heart

of the sea,

though its waters roar and foam

and the mountains quake with their surging.”

Psalm 46:1-11

* * * * *

Political waters  foam,

churn,

toss to and fro

the opinions of men

seeking power

wanting peace

wanting it all

without the shedding

of blood

but getting

dangerously close

to the point of no return.

O God,

direct your people

to pray

for the nations

who desire annihilation

of one over the other.

Help us to bear in mind

that you would have had

us all destroyed–all

who do not come to You

in holiness,

and that you destroyed Your Son

on the cross

so that

the power of the devil,

of sin,

of death

over us.

Through Christ,

the raging storm in our souls

are stilled.

We sit and wait

to see that

You will be exalted among the nations,

You will be exalted in the earth.

You, O Lord, are with us.

“You are our refuge and strength,

an ever present help in trouble.”

Lord God, calm our fears, still the raging waters, give us peace.  Thank you for being our ever-present help each and every day.  We need your help–each and every day.  We need your forgiveness.  We need the peace that only you can provide.  Thank you, dear Jesus, for coming down from Heaven to be with us and to become the solution for all our problems.  We give You thanks and praise.  In Your name we pray, Amen.
