Those Who Seek You


The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know Your name put their trust in You, for You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. Psalm 9:9-10

Heavenly Father, we praise and glorify your holy name--you alone are worthy! Please forgive us for times when we consult unbelievers, looking to them for support instead of coming to you in prayer for our needs and to your all-sufficient word to find the wisdom you offer freely to us.  We know that the beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord and without faith, it is impossible to please you.  We ask that you help us not to succumb to the fear that our enemy tries to use to drive us into the arms of the world, and that you draw us so deeply into yourself that the troubles of this world fade utterly away.  Please help us to always remember that all is well, no matter what it looks or feels like, because you are in control and always will be.  In Jesus' precious and adored name, Amen
