Today’s Prayer

Praise You, Lord Almighty, for Your love is my rock, my immovable resting place. The serene habitation You offer me in Christ has become my solitary rest. Call out to my wandering heart Jesus, until I delight to abide in You. Let me continually resort to Your holiness my Lord – that secret place where all of my soul’s chaos finds rest. Even if my plans are dashed against the rocks of infirmity, my hope blasted by tragedy, my joy withered by sun-scorching troubles, and all that I once held dear is taken away, let me rejoice in God my Savior who doesn’t change but keeps His firm grip on my heart, reminding me that nothing can thwart the permanence of His love. My life may be continually exposed to change, but Your salvation is my anchor. Lead me up the way of these defiling mountains, Lord. Though the path is treacherous at times, You are the One who steadies my steps. Be with Your beloved as I walk through the arid wilderness with scarcely the time for rest. Only in You is my soul secure, Jesus. Only in You can I truly find rest. Under the mighty blessedness of Your Word in 2 Samuel 22:2-3 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow in humble prayer.

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation,
my stronghold and my refuge,
my savior; You save me from violence.
2 Samuel 22:2-3, ESV
