Context: This prayer came to me very suddenly on the way to the pain clinic a few days ago. I had to jot it down on my phone in the car, or I would have quickly forgotten it:
The LORD will hold you in his hand (Isaiah 62:3; NLT).
You hold me in your hand,
And I hold you in mine:
May we remain like this, together –
Now, and for all time.
You take my hand in yours,
And I do just the same:
May we remain like this, in love –
Then I won’t live in vain.
They shall not labor in vain (Isaiah 65:23; NKJV).
You hold my right hand (Psalm 73:23; NLT).
I hold you by your right hand – I, the LORD your God. And I say to you, “Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you” (Isaiah 41:13; NLT).
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me (John 15:4; NLT).
God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).
