Thank you for seeing and caring about what I am going through. Thank you for the measure of peace and assurance you have been giving me, to keep me sane and keep me looking to you. Father, I lay my troubled heart in your hands and give my whole self to you. Please take care of me, and help me grow.
Psalm 34:17-20 ERV
Pray to the LORD, and he will hear you. He will save you from all your troubles.
The LORD is close to those who have suffered disappointment. He saves those who are discouraged.
Good people might have many problems, but the LORD will take them all away.
He will protect them completely. Not one of their bones will be broken.
Psalm 51:15-17 ERV
My Lord, I will open my mouth and sing your praises!
You don’t really want sacrifices, or I would give them to you.
The sacrifice that God wants is a humble spirit. God, you will not turn away someone who comes with a humble heart and is willing to obey you.
