Show your amazing kindness and rescue those who depend on you. Use your great power and protect them from their enemies. Protect me like the pupil of your eye. Hide me in the shadow of your wings. Save me from the wicked people who are trying to destroy me. Protect me from those who come to hurt me.
They think only of themselves and brag about what they will do. They have been following me, and now they are all around me. They watch me, waiting to throw me to the ground. Like hungry lions, they want to kill and eat. Like young lions, they hide, ready to attack. Lord, get up and face the enemy. Make them surrender.
Use your sword and save me from these wicked people.
Use your power, Lord, and remove them from this life. But as for the people you treasure, fill them with food. Give them plenty for their children and their grandchildren. I have done only what is right, so I will see your face. And seeing you, I will be fully satisfied. Psalm 17:7-15 ERV
This is my prayer today for you, my friends. Let it carry you through your weekend and always remember, He is the God who keeps His Word.
