Joel 3:9-21

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space, feeling pressed on all sides. You give us a glimpse of your mighty arms embracing us. Your breath is on our necks. Your lips are upon our ears. We hear you whisper: “I will not allow you to be crushed.” We relax in your embrace.

Loving Yahweh, there are wars and rumours of war. There is conflict and fighting everywhere we look. Praise to you, you are our refuge. When we are weak, you are strong. We seek you, calling out to you. You provide what we need. You restore us.

I feel safe in your embrace today, O Strong Fortress, and thank you for…

You are on your throne, King of Glory! You are orchestrating all things for your purpose. You are sustaining, protecting, and nourishing us through our trials. All praise to you!

With joy we praise you!
