Sunday Prayer 14

But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you. (Psalm 5:11)

I awaken this morning
and take refuge in You, my Lord.
No other person or place can shelter me
like You can, my God.

Under the Cross of Christ my Savior
I find rest for my soul, now and forever;
in Jesus is my true Shalom.

Come, cover me in Your life and love
even as I lift my eyes and voice to You.
Come, guide me in Your everlasting ways
through thee jungle-like pathways of this life.
Come, restore me to true life and human personality
in this world of death and dehumanization.

You are my song,
my joy,
my hope,
my God.
