Lord Jesus, you are my constancy. You are the lover of my soul and the reason for my daily walk. You are the source of my joy in all situations and the rock of escape in hard times. You are the rock that is higher than I. Be glorified in my thought, word and deed in your name and authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“As Saul and his men were closing in on David and his men to capture them, a messenger came to Saul, saying, ‘Hurry and come, for the Philistines have made a raid against the land.’ So Saul returned from pursuing after David and went against the Philistines. Therefore that place was called the Rock of Escape.” (1 Samuel 23: 26c-28 ESV)
