Hallelujah! He is the LORD!

May the Lord who is all and in all, be for us, today, even as we breathe, read, speak and sleep; our hope, our wisdom, our joy, our delight; may we live so as to forgive in Christ as God has forgiven us, those who hurt and maim our lives; those who bleed us dry and cause us to weep for their lives; may we gain courage and forbearance to care for even these, as we would care for the poor and sick among us. May we lean on Him today in trouble and give thanks for all He gives us; blessings such as we cannot contain, pour like oil from His palms, day after day, His mercies are new and we are filled with life in His Name, even as the sun breaks the mountains and the seas bow down in praise, so shall our soul give thanks to God for all that He does for us!

May the Lord shine His Face upon the world and make us glad! The Lord give to the children of all humankind, His mercy and may His grace fall like rain, may it be a layering of virgin snow upon our souls and give our hearts, compassion to rise, gentleness to give, tenderness to lay down and encouragement to speak and so we see that in the end, at the setting of the sun, we shall say to one another, this is the day the Lord had made, we are glad for it and lay down our heads to rest, knowing that, even in this, the Lord watches over us and shall guard us against all our foes and the enemy, Satan, shall not prevail against us, for the Lord is a Warrior, under His Wings we find comfort, and healing. Amen.

Lamentations 3:22-23 ... It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Psalm 118:24 ...  This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 121:8 ... The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Isaiah 54:17 ...  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

Numbers 6:24-27 ... The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:   The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:  The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.  And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.
