Monday Morning Prayer

  Father,
 This world calls me to hate,
 but You are love.
 It calls me to anger, 
 but You are mercy.
 I hear voices 
 of condescension and judgment,
 but I know that You 
 speak words of grace and hope.
  
 Shouted lies cannot 
 change Your Truth.
 Screams of rage do not
 overcome Your goodness.
 False promises will not
 thwart Your plan.
  
 Hold my heart, Lord. 
 Let Your cleansing blood barricade
 my soul from the world’s attacks.
 Strengthen me to stand when
 all around seems hopeless.
 Keep me centered in Your goodness
 and anchored in Your Word.
  
 I face today with Your praise
 on my lips
 and Your grace in my heart.
 It will be a good day,
 because You are good. 

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Psalm 33:5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations.

Psalm 100:5

      I know. I edited it as much as I could, but the sky was so beautiful! Beauty in the eyes of an electrician 😊.
