Psalms to Pray for Reassurance and Hope

Psalm 41:11-13

15 Prayers #11

In the darkest of times, in the heat of the battles, in the struggles and hardships of life, we can find great reassurance and powerful reminders through the book of Psalms of who God is. He alone is the One who can deliver and set us free from our troubles. So often we run everywhere else for help, but turning to His words of truth first is the best place to go. Praying God’s words back to Him aligns our hearts with His, brings peace to our spirits and reminds us that He’s at work on our behalf. It brings us comfort to know we’re never alone, and we can find refuge in Him and strength for our days.

Tender Mercies

Lord, don’t hold back your tender mercies from me. My only hope is in your unfailing love and faithfulness. For troubles surround me—too many to count! They pile up so high I can’t see my way out. They are more numerous than the hairs on my head. I have lost all my courage. Please, Lord, rescue me! Come quickly, Lord, and help me. Psalm 40:11-13

God hath two wings, which he doth ever move, The one is mercy, and the next is love; Under the first the sinners ever trust, And with the last he still directs the just.
Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

John 3:16 - True way back when and true today. No one will ever prove it is not true.
