So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6 ESV)
Hymn ELH 467:1-2 In God, My Faithful God
In God, my faithful God,
I trust when dark my road;
Though many woes o’ertake me,
Yet He will not forsake me.
His love it is doth send them
And, when ’tis best, will end them.
My sins assail me sore,
But I despair no more.
I build on Christ, who loves me;
From this Rock nothing moves me.
To Him I all surrender,
To Him, my soul’s Defender.
Heavenly Father, You have promised to watch over my life and to protect my soul from all harm. Help me to trust in all Your promises—especially Your promise of forgiveness through faith in Your Son, Jesus Christ. In His name I pray. Amen.
