Today we continue an ambitious project! For the next nine months, you and I will get the opportunity to read through, and more importantly, pray through the Psalms together. See Monday’s post for more info.
The audio file below is the entire episode for today. The text below is today’s prayer. I’m reading the Contemporary English Version of the Text, copyright 1995, by the American Bible Society.
God. Abba. Father.
We worship you today for you are always with us. Your word says that even when we are chased by our enemies, even when we are overwhelmed and surrounded by our fears, even when others mock us for following your holy ways, you are with us. You are our shield. You keep our feet firmly planted on your ways. We can lift our head high for we are your children. You call us “son.” You call us “daughter.” We shout loudly to you. And y our answer thunders from your throne deep to within our heart.
We thank you for the peace that we can always find in your grace and comfort. Yes, Lord. Thank you for sleep. Thank you that in your rest we wake up refreshed, strengthened for the new day. Even a new day with the same enemy surrounding us. Even when it feels like 10,000 people attacking us. We cry out to you for help. And you help us! Thank you.
Thank you for saving us. Thank you for defeating the enemy. Thank you for protecting and blessing your children. Thank for protecting and blessing us.
We offer this prayer of thanksgiving today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
