The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.  Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.”  Psalm 9:9-10

Lord God, You are on your throne.  You ruled yesterday and you will rule today too.  Your enemies will never stand nor will mine.  Lord God, stay close to me today.  The devil is always close at hand, crouching in the tall grass.  He desires to have me.  Come close to deliver me, God.  Sin is always right there too.  It wants to lead me astray.  Lead me not into temptation, dear Father.  People are there and they hurt me, attack me, undermine me, and mistreat me.  Do not forget me, dear Savior!  Remind me who I am-I am yours.  Remind me who you are to me-you are my Father.  You will not abandon me.  You will not forget me.  You are my refuge and strength.  Amen.
