Learning to deal with a chronic illness includes finding a place of refuge from the world’s cares.

Today’s Bible Verse:

Psalm 91:2 (KJV), “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.”

What the Verse Means:

Notice how the writer of the Psalm begins with a general statement followed by a personal application: “I will say of the Lord,” and then follows with “He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.” As Believers in Christ Jesus, we have a personal God who is there for us.

Praying Using the Verse:

  1. Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that You are God, the one true and living God.
    Lord, You are our refuge.
  2. God, You are our fortress.
  3. To all the world we proclaim – You are our God and in You will we trust.
  4. We pray for our children to be in worship Sunday. We pray You place in their heart the desire to be in church to worship You.
