In this prayer, the psalmist cries out for God to rescue and protect. This is someone who was raised in the faith, leaning on God from their earliest days. They have an assurance that God’s mercy and care extend beyond the limits of this life on earth. It is someone who is confident in God’s presence even when they are in danger of harm or heartbreak.
When did your faith journey begin? Can you see evidence that God was at work on your behalf even before your birth? When, in your life, have you needed to lean on God? To what degree did it help you to move through that difficulty?
Today, offer a prayer of thanksgiving for God’s everlasting love and intervention for your well-being.
