LORD, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty.
—– 2 Chronicles 14:11 (New International Version)
Dearest Abba, Father, I draw close to you to dwell in Your presence. I can’t face all that is ahead of me unless You are with me to give me strength. You are my help in time of need, and You are my shield in the midst of the battle. I need Your strength and power in my life today to sustain me and keep me standing strong. I confess that sometimes I feel too weak that I am ashamed to call myself child of God. Abba, If You live within me, why do I feel so powerless and inadequate? Jesus, If I am part of Your body, why do You delay in reaching out to me when I am hurting to soothe my pain? Yahweh, You alone are my help. Don’t let me be disgraced. In the ever dependable name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen
