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

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

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)

REFLECTION…

.

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.

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

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.

.

Amen.
