You come to my aid once again, Lord. I needn’t fret. You are with me. You help me. You strengthen me. You uphold me with your righteous right hand. You go out on my behalf for your name’s sake. Blessed is your name above all names. All the honor and praise are yours. I sit in the quiet of my beloved hickory grove to worship in your name, by your authority, and according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“Therefore thus says the Lord concerning the king of Assyria: He shall not come into this city or shoot an arrow there, or come before it with a shield or cast up a siege mound against it. By the way that he came, by the same he shall return, and he shall not come into this city, declares the Lord. For I will defend this city to save it, for my own sake and for the sake of my servant David.” (2 Kings 19: 32-34 ESV)
