Praying Through: Psalm 46

The Psalm

Psalm 46 (CSB)
For the choir director. A song of the sons of Korah. According to Alamoth.

1 God is our refuge and strength, a helper who is always found in times of trouble.

2 Therefore we will not be afraid, though the earth trembles and the mountains topple into the depths of the seas,

3 though its water roars and foams and the mountains quake with its turmoil. Selah

4 There is a river— its streams delight the city of God, the holy dwelling place of the Most High.

5 God is within her; she will not be toppled. God will help her when the morning dawns.

6 Nations rage, kingdoms topple; the earth melts when he lifts his voice.

7 The LORD of Armies is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah

8 Come, see the works of the LORD, who brings devastation on the earth.

9 He makes wars cease throughout the earth. He shatters bows and cuts spears to pieces; he sets wagons ablaze.

10 “Stop fighting, and know that I am God, exalted among the nations, exalted on the earth.”

11 The LORD of Armies is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. Selah

The Prayer

You Are My Refuge

You alone are my righteousness and my exalted Lord who rules and reigns in the heavens.

Majesty and my Love who can do what you have done?

My circumstances and my time here on earth do not define me nor do my sins nor do my actions nor do my desires nor does my heart.

Only you King Jesus give me all of my identity and worth and value.

Nothing else just you. My Lord and my Rock.
