“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 71:1-3




In You, O Lord, I take refuge;

let me never be put to shame.

In Your righteousness deliver me and rescue me;

incline Your ear to me and save me.

Be to me a rock of refuge,

a strong fortress, to save me,

for You are my rock and my fortress.


– Psalm 71:1-3 (NRSV)






There is a secure place

which is always open

to those who seek love and truth,

a place that has withstood the ravages of time

– that place, that fortress, that rock of the Lord,

where one can only find joy, peace and eternal promise.


It requires effort and determination to get there,

but constantly calling upon the Lord will ensure that we do.






My Lord God Almighty,

I acknowledge You as my Rock and my Fortress.

You are my Refuge – the Place I want to be.


You are my Strength – all I need,

and I call out to You Lord,

to help me get through those dark moments of my life.


Increase my faith, O God,

and reinforce my determination to trust in You

and to always follow Your way, Your truth, Your life.


Lord, forgive me, help me, save me.
