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.”
* * * * *
Political waters foam,
toss to and fro
the opinions of men
wanting it all
without the shedding
to the point of no return.
direct your people
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
and that you destroyed Your Son
on the cross
the power of the devil,
the raging storm in our souls
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.
