LORD God, help me to have that daily time alone with you.
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (Psalm 91:1b)
Why should I fear, Lord; what can man do to me -- I am in the shelter of your wings.
I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in him I will trust." (Psalm 91:2)
Jesus, I put my trust in you.
Surely he shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. (Psalm 91:3)
Father, I am in your hand; that is all I need to know.
He shall cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you shall take refuge; (Psalm 91:4a)
Come Holy Spirit, heavenly dove. Let me abide in the shadow of your wings and be guided by you day by day. Thank you.
His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. (Psalm 91:4b-6)
Father, please put on all of us the shoes of the preparation to share the gospel of peace; gird our loins with your truth; put on us the breastplate of righteousness, and the helmet of salvation. Place on our arm the shield of faith with which to quench every fiery dart of the evil one; and place in our hand the sword of your Spirit which is your word; that having stood all, we might yet stand. Finally, help us to be strong in Jesus and in the power of his might, and cast off from us the chains of apathy that keep us from speaking boldly as we ought to speak. Thank you. (See Ephesians 6:10-20)
The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. (Psalm 92:12)
Jesus, clothe me in your righteousness.
Those who are planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. (Psalm 92:13)
Holy Spirit, plant me firmly in the Body of Christ.
They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing, (Psalm 92:14)
Father, prune us so that we may bear fruit in old age and are fresh and flourishing.
To declare that the LORD is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him. (Psalm 92:15)
LORD, please help me daily declare your righteousness and that you are our rock and refuge. Thank you for your faithfulness and righteousness.
A word received: Pray that I will work in your heart. Give me your heart so that I may work in it.
