Tonight I’m going to leave you with words from a wise man.
A prayer for you… (personalized psalm 27)
The LORD is your light and your salvation—
whom shall you fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of your life—
of whom shall you be afraid?
2 When the wicked advance against you
to devour you,
it is your enemies and your foes
who will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege you,
your heart will not fear;
though war break out against you,
even then you will be confident.
4 One thing I ask from the LORD,
this only do I seek, for you
that you may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of your life,
to gaze on the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep you safe in his dwelling;
he will hide you in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set you high upon a rock.
6 Then your head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround you;
at his sacred tent you will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
You will sing and make music to the LORD.
7 Hear our voices when we calls, LORD;
be merciful to her and answer us.
8 Her heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, LORD, She will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from us,
do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been her helper.
Do not reject us or forsake us,
God your Savior.
10 Though your father and mother forsake you,
the LORD will receive you.
11 Teach us your way, LORD;
lead us in a straight path
because of her oppressors.
12 Do not turn us over to the desire of our foes,
for false witnesses rise up against us,
spouting malicious accusations.
13 Remain confident of this:
YOU will see the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD.
