Creator God, thank you for being faithful and fulfilling all your promises. You have said that you give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak. Those who take refuge in the shadow of your wings will find safety in times of difficulty. O God, deliver me from evil and be my fortress against the pressures that seem to be surrounding me. Remind me that you are greater than any enemy. Please help me to lift my eyes away from my circumstances and up towards you. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
