“O God, You have rejected us. You have broken us; You have been angry; O, restore us.  You have made the land quake, You have split it open; heal its breaches, for it totters.”  (Psalm 60:1-2)

Woe to those who say there is no God.  The Lord knows the land that honors Him.  The Lord knows those who look to Him as the source of their being.  Turn to the Lord and do not remain broken, but healed and restored.  Come to the Lord and you will find rest.  Know that the Lord is good and that He binds up broken hearts and lifts up the lowly.  Turn to the Lord and live.

Lord, all around are those who jeer and mock You, yet You remain faithful to those who believe in You.  Guide me in the way of goodness that I would simply stand fast in the truth You have revealed for the ages.  Lead me in Your righteousness that I would not walk through the wide gate of those who reject You and mock You.

Lord Jesus, You came despite all those who mocked You and would not receive the grace and mercy You brought.  Lead me to be faithful in the midst of this troubled and mixed up world.  Help me always look to Your grace first and know that in You is life and hope.  Help me to see my way clearly through the faith You have given me that I would stand fast and be a witness of Your grace and mercy in the world.  Amen.
