Gods presence for our journey through life.
 
Psalm 23  The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside still waters…..Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me; your rod and staff they comfort me. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (1-2, 6)
 
Dear God, Thank you that you are our good Shepherd and we can trust you with our lives. We’re so grateful for your leadership and Sovereignty, for your guidance and care in all our days. Thank you that you restore our souls,  give us peace and bring us hope in all our tomorrows.  Your protection and strength surround us like a shield, and we never have to fear. Thank you for your goodness and love that follows after us, chases us, even when we’re unaware.  In you alone is true rest and peace. We praise you for the assurance that we will dwell with you forever.  Amen.
 
Hope and Reassurance from God Who Draws Close
 
Psalm 51 – When we’re desperate for the Lord’s grace and mercy, we can trust that His ears are open to our cries for His help. He draws us to Himself; He desires our hearts to be right with Him. And in this prayerful Psalm, we receive great hope and reassurance that God does draw near to those who draw near to Him in repentance and truth.
“Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love, according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions……. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.  Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me……. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” (Psalm 51: 1, 10-12, 17)
 
Dear God,  Thank you for your forgiveness, for your great love and mercy over our lives. We need you today, and every day. We ask that you would create in us a clean heart, renew a steadfast spirit within us, that we might follow after you all the days of our lives. Fill us with your joy, Lord God, restore our hearts and refresh our spirits. Thank you that you are close to the broken-hearted, you hear our prayers and you promise to be with us always. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
 
Reassurance that He is protecting us.
 
Psalm 91 He who dwells in the shelter of the most high, will abide in the shadow of the Almighty, I will say to the Lord “my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust”……. ”You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that wastes at noonday.  With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation”.(1-2, 5-6, 15.)When he calls to me I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honour him.
 
Dear God, Thank you for your presence with us, thank you for your Almighty Shadow. The fear we’re facing seems insurmountable. We don’t even know what to do anymore, we feel uncertain about the future. We wonder sometimes if you’re really listening. Life seems to have taken us so far away. Please help us to come back to you. Bring us safely under the shelter of your wings. Thank you that you alone are our fortress; we find protection and rest in you today. In Jesus’ Name,Amen.
 
God Constantly Watches over Us
 
Psalm 121 - This Psalm is a hope-filled reminder that we can fully depend on God for help. He is constantly watching over us, protecting our coming and going:
“I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” Psalm 121:1-8
 
Dear God, Thank you that you go before us and cover us from behind.  Thank you that you are in our midst and our future is secure in the place you’re preparing for us. We choose faith over fear today. We choose to set our eyes on you and not on our circumstances. We choose joy over despair. We choose peace over worry. Silence the lies of the enemy over us. Give us the awareness we need to step over his traps. We trust you to protect our way and bring us safely through the trials we’re facing. Your words bring hope to our souls and comfort to our hearts. Remind us of your strength today, in us, through us. May we see glimpses of your glory and blessing along the way as we seek after you, for victory and salvation are found in you alone.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
