Prayer

You hold us

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms (Deuteronomy 33:27; NIV).

God speaks again and again, though people do not recognise it (Job 33:14; NLT).

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up (James 4:10; NIV).

He loves us with unfailing love (Psalm 117:2; NLT).

………………………………………………..

 

Lord,
You hold us in your arms,
But we don’t see you;

You talk to us each day,
But we don’t hear;

You lift us when we fall,
But we don’t thank you;

Yet you love us as we are –
Year after year.

You hide me

Hide me in the shadow of your wings (Psalm 17:8; NLT).

All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings (Psalm 36:7; NLT).

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).

The Lord is full of tenderness (James 5:11; NLT).

The Lord your God will be your everlasting light (Isaiah 60:19; NLT).

………………………………………………..

 

You hide me
In your holy shadow, Lord;

You keep me safe
However dark the night.

You hold me
With your deepest tenderness;

And fill me
With your everlasting light.

Prayer

Hold lightly

Teach us to realise the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom (Psalm 90:12; NLT).

The Lord gives both death and life (1 Samuel 2:6; NLT).

No one has power over the time of their death (Ecclesiastes 8:8; NIV).

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour (Matthew 25:13; NIV).

This very night your life will be demanded from you (Luke 12:20; NIV).

 

Friends,
Let us hold on lightly
To our lives,

For we cannot know
The day or hour

When God will ask us
To relinquish them.
