Today’s Prayer

In the tranquility of knowing that I am Yours, Lord God, I find my rest. Let the worries of this world not assault me anymore. Let the pursuit of lesser things not drive me. Beside the stream of truth flowing from Your Word into my heart is where my soul can be found. Worshiping in humble adoration is what my heart will do because You have led me here, Jesus. When the clouds of despair move into my countenance, remind my weary soul that the Son shines above the clouds. When life’s inevitable storms threaten my sense of security, remind me that my foundation is firm in Christ. Make my faith the anchor which holds me and my devotion the filter that allows me to see clearly. The shadow of death may taunt me, but it has no power over me by virtue of what You accomplished on the cross, my Lord. Let Your saving work be the essence of my joy. Let Your amazing grace be the source of my security. Under the mighty Word of truth in Psalm 23:1-4 and the authority of Christ Jesus, my heart bows before You in adoring prayer.

The Lord is my shepherd;
    I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows;
    he leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
    bringing honor to His Name.
Even when I walk
    through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
    for You are close beside me.
Psalm 23:1-4, NLT
