He Is Our God
“Daily Prayer for January 20
CHRISTOPH FRIEDRICH BLUMHARDT
Fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10, RSV
Dear Father in heaven, we thank you that you are our Father and that we may have you with us. We thank you that we can know you are leading us by your hand. Give us your Spirit of understanding so that we may always see your mighty and powerful hand guiding us on all our ways. Help us where we fall short. Help us, for we are weak and are often in situations where we cannot help ourselves. But you are strong. You give light to our hearts. Through the Savior, Jesus Christ, we can direct our lives cheerfully, joyfully, and patiently toward the great goal set before us your children, and before the whole world. Amen”
He is our God, our Heavenly Father, our protector, and our healer. We need not fear the things happening in the world today, for our God is in control. We can trust God with the very breath we take.
Though we grow weary and tired, God will sustain us. He will help us walk through the storms of life. When we keep our eyes on Jesus, the cares of this will grow dim. When we worship God through our troubles, God will shine a bit of heaven into our hearts.
Pray for the people of Israel. Pray for lost souls.
I Am Coming Quickly
He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
