Psalm 33 c

Leader: A king is not saved by his great army. A warrior is not delivered by his great strength.

People: The war horse is a vain hope for victory, and by its great might it cannot save.

Leader: Truly the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

People: Our soul waits for the Lord. He is our help and shield.

Leader: Our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name.

People: Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.

Heavenly Father, we have learned from the Scriptures, history, and our own experience that You never fail those You love. We know we cannot trust in earthly and material possessions, for they can easily be stolen away. Yet those You grasp in Your heart of love can never be taken from Your hand. O Lord, no matter what their power or wealth, mere human beings and governments cannot be as trustworthy and almighty as You. Lord Jesus, each day we place our hope in You. Be our Guide and Shield, our Savior, now and forever. Today, fill us once again with Your Holy Spirit as we pray in the way You taught us to pray: “Our Father. . .”
