Our Help, Who Made Heaven and Earth

“Our help is in the Name of the Lord; the maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:2 is a fine way to start off a prayer. Evening Prayer, to be exact, at http://www.dailyoffice.org.

Much of the stuff advocated by these prayers (or, Compline, if we are to be specific) strikes me as being hopeful. Hope-filled. No matter what else is going on in my life, I can get a little boost (or, a bigger boost) from the prayers.

It’s not that things are falling down, around my ears. Certainly not! But, when I think about my life, and the small conversations and the larger happenings that go on around me each day, I have it on good authority that God wins, in the end. Even though Satan does his best to trip me up, I know who wins the war.

Lord, thank You for watching over all members and friends of Your family. Thanks for giving people Your hope, too. I know sometimes, things stink. They fall apart. I know, I have lived it. But—You are there, with me. You never leave me nor forsake me. Every now and then? I need to hear that, Lord. (Sometimes more often than now and then.) Thank You, God. I need the hope. The boost. So be it, Lord.
