In you, O LORD, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame; in your righteousness deliver me! Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily! Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me! For you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name’s sake you lead me and guide me; you take me out of the net they have hidden for me, for you are my refuge. Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God. (Psalm 31:1-5 ESV)
Hymn ELH 160:1-2 O God, Our Help in Ages Past
O God, our Help in ages past,
Our Hope for years to come,
Our Shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal Home!
Under the shadow of Thy throne
Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
And our defense is sure.
Heavenly Father, in Your love and mercy, You provide food, clothing, shelter and protection for me each day. Thank You for all that do for me to meet my physical needs. I especially thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to pay for all my sins. Through Him You provide for my daily spiritual need of forgiveness for my sins. In His name I pray. Amen.
