Today's Verse: Psalm 28:9

Wednesday, June 6, 2007

Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.
— Psalm 28:9

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

While most of us are familiar with the very personal declaration about God as shepherd in Psalm 23. This Psalm is a plea for God to actively shepherd all of his people today and into the far distant future. It is also a great reminder of how important it is for us to pray for God's presence in the lives of his children wherever, and "whenever" they are!

My Prayer...

Eternal Father, the great "I AM," please bless me as I seek to pass on faith to my children. Bless them and their generation, and lead them in your truth so that they may pass on a vibrant and passionate faith to their children. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
