Psalm 12 & 13

Leader: You, O Lord, will protect us. You have promised, “Because the poor are despoiled, because the needy groan, I will now rise up. I will place them in the safety for which they long.”

People: The promises of the Lord are promises that are pure, as silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times.

Leader: I trust in your steadfast love, O Lord. My heart shall rejoice in your salvation.

People: I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.

Heavenly Father, we worship You as our defender, guardian, and protector. You care for us in ways that make You the perfect example of true fatherhood. Sometimes we pray to You with groans that words cannot express, and You rise up to meet our needs with a perfect understanding. You lead us to safety and Your everlasting arms hold us securely. We find our rest in the palm of Your hand. We trust in all of Your promises, and we confess that You have never failed to keep Your word to us. Fill us now with Your Spirit and help us keep our word to You. We rejoice in You and in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who taught us to pray: “Our Father. . .”
