praying today's psalm: psa 46

God is our refuge and strength,
An ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
Though the earth give way
And the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
Though its waters roar and foam
And the mountains quake with their surging.    

“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”
The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
    
(Psa 46:1-3,10-11 NIV)

Father, there is much to fear in this life. Trouble threatens us everyday. And yet you command us not to fear. You call us to trust. You call us to believe that you are there. That you are willing and able. That you do indeed care for us, and that you are in fact God. That even if we should lose our lives, we will not. Give us this kind of trust. Give us the courage that comes from this trust. When our minds are filled with anxiety, help us to be still and believe. Amen Amen
