Psalm 5:11 “But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy.”
[Yes, you, Lord Jesus, are our Refuge and Strength, our Mighty Rock and Defender, our Fortress in the day of evil. You invite us into your protection, you open the way to safety, and for all those who come, you give joy.
Truly, knowing you is wonderful: you are
the Mighty Shepherd,
the Powerful Creator,
the Strong Sustainer,
the All-knowing King,
the Majestic Victor over all evil
and our High Priest who lives forever to intercede for us.
Yes, knowing you is enough for joy!]
You “Spread your protection over them,”
[You are our tent of refuge spread over us every day, every minute: “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty”!!! (Psalm 91:1).
As we choose to live in the grace of your presence, your light banishes darkness, your power defeats worry, your plans erase confusion, your love overcomes fear.
You are our personal protection,
our gracious guide,
our constant keeper
and our persistent provider.
We can praise you for whatever comes, good or ghastly, delightful or difficult, nice or nasty, for you are wise and good, powerful and protecting, allowing only what can be used for growth, good and your glory!
Help us to consistently offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving so we can honor you and open the way so that you may show us the salvation of the Lord.]
