But You, Sovereign Lord, help me for Your Name’s sake;
out of the goodness of Your love, deliver me.
For I am poor and need, and my heart is wounded within me. – Psalm 109:21-22
Let anyone who is thirsty come to Me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. – John 7:37-38
Father, my heart is humbled before You and Your mighty power.
When the sun shines with warmth and brilliance, You have given it the power and fury to carry light and heat to the earth. When the storm-clouds roll over the horizon and drop fierce rain and winds over our streets and houses, You have invigorated the atmosphere and created the processes by which it develops strength.
All power and wonder derives from You.
Lord, would You show Your power in my life in ever greater degrees. When there is so much to carry, please help me. Please give grace. Please strengthen me to serve You fully and faithfully, for I am poor and needy.
