Prayer, Plain and Simple

Learning to Walk With God’s Help

“If I go up to the mountains, you are there.
If I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn or settle on the far side of the sea,
Even there your hand will guide me,
Your right hand will hold me fast.”
Psalm 139

I remember helping our children learn to walk, we would bend over, spotting them with our arms, following them around to catch them when they would fall. That is a picture of God. He stands behind me and all around me, everywhere I go. How we need His protection and guidance.

Father,

I thank you that you never leave me. Please continue to walk with me. I need your protection and grace to cover me through this day. And when I leave you (for you never leave me), please draw me back quickly, back into your loving presence where I find peace and joy continually.

Amen
