Save me, O God, by Your name;
And vindicate me by Your [wondrous] power.
Hear my prayer, O G_d;
Listen to the words of my mouth.
For strangers have risen against me
And violent men have sought my life;
They have not set God before them. Selah.
Behold, G_d is my helper and ally;
The Lord is the sustainer of my soul [my upholder] (Psalm 54:1-4).
The battles we face in life tend to push us to one extreme or the other and in the family unit, both extremes can and do exist. Dealing with extremes and the choice to “live for the Lord” are personal choices that only we can make. We can listen to advice all day long but what we do with that advice is what we will be held accountable for.
Help me to daily meet with you before I face the battles of my life. May your shekinah glory daily guide me where ever I go. I pray for my law enforcement officers, EMTs, teachers, ministers, family, prayer families, military, city, state, and nation. I pray specifically for those who are hurting, injured, ill, and in need of a special touch from you.
