Comfort In The Morning

Lord,

when I’m overwhelmed and cannot see the light,

when others mock your presence and discourage my trust,

I know that your hand covers me,

that I’m under the darkness and shelter of your wings.

You are my shield and my refuge.

I am nothing, yet Your Spirit and presence within are my glory,

your love cherishes, honors, and values me.

I cry out loud to you,

in wonder that you would receive my words, my voice,

and I weep as you turn your ear,

and answer from your holy mountain.

My sleep is sweet,

Lord you sustain my breath,

I awaken to another day because you sustain me,

you are life itself.

I refuse to be afraid or intimated of my old enemies,

bondages, and evil all around,

Lord I trust you.

Arise, save and deliver me once more!

You confuse my enemies,

they know not their right hand from their left,

you strike their face, shatter their teeth.

You are a defender of the righteous,

protecting and blessing your people.

I praise you Lord,

how beautiful is your salvation,

I bless your Name!

Amen.

Under His Talit

Lord,

Cover me under the wings of your talit,

let me dwell secure under your presence,

hidden from the eyes of my enemy.

I will rest in the comfort of your shadow,

and praise you for you are my refuge and a banner over me.

You protect me completely with your pinions,

I’m safe under the span of your wings,

they are a shield and wall surrounding me,

impenetrable and sound as your faithfulness to me.

Your command your angels concerning me,

like the sixty mighty men guarding the couch of Solomon,

you protect and guard me,

sending confusion into the camps of the enemy,

causing curses to land back on the head of its sender.

I am lifted up so my feet can walk secure,

crushing the heads of snakes because I trust in you.

I know when I call on you,

you answer me, you rescue me, you honor me,

I love you Lord,

and I praise you and bless you for my salvation.

Amen.

Faithful To Guide

Lord,

I trust you,

thank you for care, guidance, and protection,

thank you that I can come to you with every detail of my day.

I praise you for provision,

wisdom, counsel, connections, resources,

a supply I’m incapable of mustering on my own.

And I thank you that you know exactly what I need,

no more, no less,

in the exact time, place, and measure,

so that I can trust my moments

all I can and cannot control

into your perfect hands.

You are my Sheperd,

you lead me,

you walk with me,

you know me,

God of the universe,

you are my friend.

I’m blessed beyond measure,

and my life is secure,

knowing I am yours and yours always,

carried in your beautiful hands.

Amen.
