Shelter and Rest

Shelter and Rest

Personalized Scripture Prayer: Psalm 91

We who dwell in your shelter, Most High God, will rest in your shadow, Lord Almighty. We will say of you, LORD, “You are our refuge and our fortress, our God, in whom we trust.” Surely you will save us from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. You will cover us with your feathers, and under your wings we will find refuge; your faithfulness will be our shield and rampart.

We will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at our side, ten thousand at our right hand, but it will not come near us. We will only observe with our eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

If we say, “You, LORD, are our refuge,” and we make you, the Most High, our dwelling, no harm will overtake us, no disaster will come near our tent.

For you will command your angels concerning us to guard us in all our ways; they will lift us up in their hands, so that we will not strike our feet against  stones. We will tread on the lion and the cobra; we will trample the great lion and the serpent.

LORD, you have said that because we love you, you will rescue us; you will protect us, for we acknowledge your name. We will call on you, and you will answer us; you will be with us in trouble, you will deliver us and honor us. With long life you will satisfy us and show us your salvation.”
