Anxiety? Happy are the people whose God is the Lord

Providence of God  |  June 26

I will sing a new song to You, O God; on a harp of ten strings I will sing praises to You,
The One who gives salvation to kings, who delivers David His servant from the deadly sword.
Rescue me and deliver me from the hand of foreigners, whose mouth speaks lying words, and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood–
That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as pillars, sculptured in palace style;
That our barns may be full, supplying all kinds of produce; that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields;
That our oxen may be well-laden; that there be no breaking in or going out; that there be no outcry in our streets.
Happy are the people who are in such a state; happy are the people whose God is the LORD!

Psalm 144:9-15

Father, we are indeed happy that we are Your people. Help us teach our children Your ways that they may bring honor and glory to Your name.

Your blessings, both small and large give us joy. May we spread that joy among Your people. Lift from us those temporal worries and anxieties that prevent our joy from being fully realized.

Teach us God to look up and consider Your presence, all day, knowing that You direct our footsteps if we ask it of You. To whom else could we look? There is no one like You. Bless us this day, we pray. In Jesus Holy name, we pray, amen.
