Lord, you stir my thoughts when my brain is numb. You supplant your joy when I’m burdened for humanity. You support me when my knees buckle under the weight. You reassure me when I can’t see forward. Your eternal hope uplifts me. Your tender voice encourages me. Your righteous right hand holds me through it all. Thank you. I praise you in your name above all names, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10 ESV)
