Yet I still belong to You; you hold my right hand.
You guide me with Your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.
Whom have I in heaven but You? I desire You more than anything on earth.
My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever.
Psalm 73:23-26 New Living Translation (NLT)
You are the Living God who spoke all things into existence. All glory, praise and honor are Yours for every good and perfect gift. We come to Your Throne of mercy through Jesus Christ to give You thanks.
Thank You for who You are. Thank You for loving us and for Your grace that covers us. This has been a rough week, Lord God. But it is a blessed assurance to know that You are still on that Throne. Omniscient One, Your mercy endures forever. You sit high and look low with love and compassion upon all Your hands have made. You see it all.
Comfort those who mourn. Cover those whose lives have been changed so abruptly and provide hope for the future. Restore, renew and revive all that was lost and let us all begin again to recognize what is most important among these things. Be our strength and guide us as You use Your children to demonstrate Your love in the midst of adversity. Heal our land, again.
In Jesus' name,
