Psalms 34:17-18

17The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears,

and rescues them from all their troubles.

18The Lord is near the brokenhearted;

he saves those crushed in spirit.

Reflections:  God won’t leave you. He hears the cries of his people and comes to their aid. It’s not always the kind of help we want nor expect – which is perhaps a reason that we so often don’t notice God in our darkest moments – but he always comforts, accompanies and saves us.

Question:  What do you think it feels like to have God with you?

Prayers:  Thank you, God, that you save us. Thank you for hearing our cries. Please deliver us from evil. Amen.
