They who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 ESV)
Hymn ELH 43:1,7 Holy God, We Praise Thy Name
Holy God, we praise Thy name;
Lord of all, we bow before Thee.
All on earth Thy scepter claim,
All in heaven above adore Thee.
Infinite Thy vast domain,
Everlasting is Thy reign.
Spare Thy people, Lord, we pray,
By a thousand snares surrounded;
Keep us without sin today,
Never let us be confounded.
Lo, I put my trust in Thee;
Never, Lord, abandon me.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your daily protection of my body and soul. Give me strength each day through Your Word, and protect all those who suffer persecution for their faith in You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
