“Psalm 31:1-5 and 15-16 (Contemporary English Version)” by Mark Beingessner

Psalm 31:1-5, 15-16

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred paddocks, seeking your peace and protection. We commit ourselves into your care. We trust in your promise that you are caring for our every need. But the future is full of uncertainty; we fear for the unknown that lurks in the dark places.

In you, we find our shelter and protection. Never let us be put to shame. Thank you for hearing us call out to you to be our place of safety, fortress, and protection. In you, we find we are loved and created for a purpose; our confidence and identity comes from you and only you.

I feel your face shining on me today, O Yahweh, and thank you for…

Your light pushes back the darkness of fear and uncertainty. O LORD, let your glorious face be all we see as we journey together. Ordain and fill our days with faith, praise, and thanksgiving to you.

With joy we praise you!
