Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus came to show God's heart to us and to rescue us from our enemies. But today, in hostile parts of the world, as well as in the places many would least expect it, Christians are under daily attack. God sent Jesus not only to save us ultimately and totally from sin and its power but also to deliver us from the daily attacks from the evil one, our hostile cultures, and our battle with our fleshly desires. Let's pray that our loving God will work mightily in our world today to deliver his children from the clutches of tyranny, poverty, violence, abuse, and ridicule. Let's also pray that we recognize God rescuing and redeeming his children and praise him for his deliverance!

My Prayer...

Holy and righteous Father, please strengthen all your beloved children who find themselves under attack. Make your deliverance of them known and shown in the display of your mighty power. You are our Redeemer and Savior. In the name of your Son, Jesus, we pray:

Do not hide your face from your servant; answer me quickly, for I am in trouble. Come near and rescue me; redeem me because of my foes. [Amen.]
