Thank you, God

Gracious God, thank you for the gift of the Psalms. Thank you for the comfort I find in Your word. Like the people long ago who sought you through song and poetry, I cry out to you. Their words, by the hands of many messengers, come to me today and comfort me in my fear, frustration, anger, joy and longing for an end to suffering.
In Christ's name I pray, Amen.

Ps 57: 1 for you today St. C

I will take refuge inthe shadow of your wings, until the disaster has passed

the rest is pretty good too.

Lord keep St C and her family close to you in the shadow of your wings - like the chicks close to the mother hen -warm, safe, protected, fed and loved.

Amen

Psalm 46 is the refuge psalm for me.
Bless you.
