I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.
Look to him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed. Psalm 34:4-5
Prayer - God, I thank you that you hear my fear and you answer my deepest need for courage and for hope. Be with me this day. Shine your light upon all I fear, and brighten my face so that I may bring hope and peace to everyone I meet. Amen

Prayer - Lord God, my soul cries out to you. Hear the longings of my heart, and save me from the troubles that haunt my days.

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Psalm 96:11–12a
Prayer - Extravagant God, who made the world and everything in it, everywhere I look I see the signs of your love and care for us. Let me this day join the chorus of all your creation in joyfully singing your praises for all to hear. Let me never stop singing until you come in righteousness and truth. Amen.

Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary. Psalm 96:6
Prayer - Faithful Father, my soul yearns to be in your sanctuary. I need your strength to carry me over the temptations I often stumble upon. Open my eyes to see the splendor and majesty in even the smallest moments. Help me to feel and to share the wonder of being in your Holy presence. Use me to invite others into your sacred space, your sanctuary. Amen.
