Dear Heavenly Father, what comfort and joy all Your children gain from Your precious Word, and I thank You that You are my strength and my Shield. My heart trusts in You, and I praise and thank You for the help and comfort I received, through faith in Christ Jesus my Saviour. Thank You that Your ear is ever open to the cries of Your people. Help me take every thought captive to Christ, when circumstances arise that would otherwise overwhelm me and cause me to fear. The joy of the Lord is my strength, therefore my heart exults in grateful thanks and eternal praise, AMEN.
