As we bring healing to those in need of strength,
May our spirits be filled with the light of You.
As we bring hope to a broken world.
May our hearts be softened by the light of You.
Poet Stacey Robinson: "I stand here, ready to begin again, to follow this road of dust, that stretches before me."
The most famous verse in the most famous Psalm offers insight and counsel that is tragically timely. "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for You are with me."
Eternal God, You abide though all things change. We are anxious and fearful, and we turn our hearts to You, looking to You and leaning on Your strength.
We come to You, O God, for your gracious help. You dwell within our heart, You feel our distress, You know our pain, and how burdened we are. Give us strength to bear our burdens with courage, wisdom, and grace.
