Take some time today to pray this Psalm as a prayer, to take some time to breathe and relish in the graces God has for your life. I challenge you to read this a s prayer to yourself 2 different times today, reflecting on your day, your life. We all need time for prayer, so hopefully this time can open your mind and heart to God.
Today's Psalm states:'God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. [Selah] Come, behold the works of the LORD, how he has wrought desolations in the earth'(Psalms 46:2-3, 5-6, 8-9).
Today's prayer 'Knowing Jesus' a prayer for Psalm 46, God's strength:
Lord I am facing such hard times – times that have become much more difficult with each passing day and at times I get quite anxious and afraid, wondering how we are going to manage. Lord I know that You have promised to care for all Your children – but there are so many… I don’t understand how You can care for us all… nevertheless I want to trust You to keep Your word because You have promised – and You are faithful to keep Your promises. Thank You Lord that You are my light and my salvation. I know that there is nothing to worry about when You are my strength and stay – Lord I believe that there is nothing that You cannot do – please help my unbelief Lord Jesus, for I know that when You are the stronghold of my life there is nothing of which to be afraid… Thank You Lord Amen
