You are the giver of life. You are the one who sustains every breath and every heartbeat. You are the one who is our strength, our refuge, and our hiding place.
Yet, how often do we walk by sight rather than by faith? How often do we succumb to worldly fear rather than Your word? How often do we try to save ourselves rather than being willing to lose our lives for Your sake?
Forgive us for choosing the illusion of man-made safety over Your mighty strong tower. Help us not to fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Help us to be the salt and the light especially in the face of danger. Help us to submit to Your will as Your humble servants.
We give thanks to You that death has been defeated. Let us confidently proclaim that You are our helper and we will not fear. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
