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.


  • 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.
