The eternal God is your refuge,
and his everlasting arms are under you.
(Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).
You take us in your arms, Lord God:
Ready to help us do your will.
You hold us in your mind, Lord God:
Ready to help us face each ill.
You keep us in your heart, Lord God:
Ready to help us serve your Son.
You guard us in your soul, Lord God,
Ready to help us live as one.
God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
(Psalm 46:1; NLT).
I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one –
as you are in me, Father, and I am in you.
(John 17:21; NLT).
