DayLight Scripture – God is our refuge and strength, a help always near in times of great trouble. That’s why we won’t be afraid when the world falls apart, when the mountains crumble into the center of the sea, when its waters roar and rage, when the mountains shake because of its surging waves.
Psalm 46: 1-3
DayLight Prayer – Lord, You have firmly planted me in a place of refuge. I am blessed to have your strength to help me in my troubled times. You guide my steps, and keep me from falling, even when I don’t know that you are there. My praise and adoration can’t be long enough nor loud enough to express my gratitude for your love.
