Unless the Lord had given me help,I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.When I said, “My foot is slipping,”your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.When anxiety was great within me,your consolation brought me joy. (Psalm 94:17-19 NIV)
Si el Señor no me hubiera brindado su ayuda, muy pronto me habría quedado en mortal silencio. No bien decía: «Mis pies resbalan», cuando ya tu amor, Señor, venía en mi ayuda. Cuando en mí la angustia iba en aumento, tu consuelo llenaba mi alma de alegría. (Salmos 94:17-19 NVI)
Merciful and gracious Father in heaven ~ thank you for making us aware of your love and care on this new day. Help all people in the world to remember – or to be made aware of the truth that rebellious human sinfulness is our greatest enemy to productive and joyful life while on earth. O Lord, you know the number of our days. Give us wisdom to daily remember that we cannot lengthen our days on earth by being fretful and anxious about threats to our health. Restore our sense of joy as we trust in Christ our Lord. We humbly and fervently pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
