As we start this new year, God has put it on my heart to pray scripture in the coming days. There will be a slight change to my format, but I hope you will join me in raising our voices in prayer.
Dear God, we come before you with praise. Praise that you are the sovereign, omniscient, merciful God… full of love and grace. We are in awe that the One who set the stars in the sky is also the one who knows every hair on our head. Thank you for the gift of Jesus Christ who has put us in right relationship with you and for the privilege of coming before you in prayer. Alleluia. Amen.
READ Psalm 16:8
“I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.”
- Write down the action that the Psalmist takes.
- Write down the result of that action.
- No matter what you are going through, what is coming against you, what is unknown or what is hoped for… when we choose to keep the Lord before us we can be sure that we will not be shaken. Trust…
Dear Father God we thank you that you are our foundation and our strength. Help us to always keep our eyes on you, the founder and perfecter of faith. Knowing that when we do… we will not be shaken. Lord if we are feeling rattled, lost or afraid – help us to remember that you never leave us or forsake us…we will not be shaken. In Jesus Name – Amen!
