Sunday Prayer 8

For God alone my soul waits in silence,
    for my hope is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my deliverance and my honor;
    my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
Trust in him at all times, O people;
    pour out your heart before him;
    God is a refuge for us.
(Psalm 62:5-8)

All sorts of things in our lives
send us shaking and shuddering:
the violence, the loneliness, the divisions,
the memories, the godlessness, and more.

O Lord, we come running to You
to find peace, rest, refuge, and hope,
and in You there is more than enough
space to not just huddle up and hide
but to stand, walk, and thrive in life.

We’re looking to You, running to You, and living with You today.
Be glorified, Lord!

  1. HI Matt –

    I am really enjoying your Sunday prayers.
    Depth and quality…they speak.
    Are you crafting these as original?
    However…well done!

    Jeff
