You are my solid rock and my shield, Lord. You are the shoulder I lean on in hard times and the hand I squeeze in good times. You are my creativity. You drive my achievement. You shade me from the day’s glare; and you comfort me during the night. I awake thanking you for a new day. I rise praying for the strength to carry out your will for the task ahead. I rest between your powerful shoulders. I soak in your loving touch in my quiet times. You are near. I lift my praise for your continued provision and protection. I sing for your good pleasure, Father, in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you. For you bless the righteous, O Lord; you cover him with favor as with a shield.” (Psalm 5: 11-12 ESV)
