I was praying for someone who answered the call of God … I could almost hear God’s voice: Peace I give you … the Joy of the Lord is your strength. I opened my Bible: The LORD watches over the way of the righteous … Blessed are all who take refuge in Him … From the LORD comes deliverance. May Your blessing be on Your people … I will lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety … Yes, LORD, let all who take refuge in You be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread Your protection over them, that those who love Your name may rejoice in You. For surely, O LORD, You bless the righteous; You surround them with Your favour as with a shield.
Dear Father God,
You know the desires of our hearts. You are magnificent! You are sovereign! You are our LORD! We are Your children. You are our Father God! Amen!
You know all our needs, fears and anxieties. You meet all our needs according to the glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Your Perfect Love drives out fear. We rejoice in the Fear of the LORD! We rest in the Fear of the LORD! Our peace is in You. Our joy is in You. Our hope is in You.
Fill us Lord! Not by might, nor by power but by Your Spirit. In Your Spirit, we shall live and move and have our being. Paul told us not to be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present our requests to You. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Hear our cry for help! Hear our cry for mercy! Hear the cry of our hearts, O LORD!
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, lovely, and admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – we think about such things - with a humble and thankful heart. Whatever we learn, we shall put into practice - with a teachable spirit. Fill us Lord! Amen!
In Jesus’ wonderful name we pray.
