Merciful God, thank you that you give the gift of abundant, eternal life. You have said that I do not need to be anxious about anything, but in every situation, I should present my requests to God. Hear my prayer for protection now Lord. You are my rock where I find refuge. You are my shield where I find safety. You are my stronghold where I can stand in security instead of fear. You are my Savior, Lord, and I praise you. Give me the strength to carry on when I feel like giving up. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
