God. Abba. Father.

Sometimes it seems like people, companies, entities, and even our government, is consuming us without cause. So, we turn to your word, today, for encouragement and stability. Your word is sure and steady. It is our firm foundation. When all the rest of life is like a tree arching over in a fierce thunderstorm, we find treasure, shelter, and joy in your word.

We love your word. Its truthful message confronts the lies that are prevalent just about everywhere we turn. We worship you in the morning, at noon, in the evening. You are to be praised throughout the day.

We find the gift of peace when we meditate on your word. We love the beauty and balance in the seasons of life. We celebrate the new life of joyful flowers of the spring, the warmth of the summer sunshine, the harvest of autumn, and the dormancy of winter. We love the way you keep our feet from stumbling when we walk on your pathways.

You are our only hope. We obey and trust your ways. You know our hearts and our deepest thoughts. Give us the courage to follow you where you lead.

Thank you for the grace and peace we find through our Messiah, Jesus.

And it’s in His name we pray.
