Psalm 28:8-9

The Lord is their strength. He is a stronghold of salvation for his anointed king. Save your people, and bless the people that belong to you. Shepherd them, and carry them forever.

Dear Lord Jesus,

You are the Good Shepherd who watches over all who believe in you. You paid the penalty for our sins through your holy life and innocent death. You restored us to the good favor of the Father. Lord, you forgave us all our sins and blessed us. Then in your resurrection, you also defeated death for us, so we have that stronghold of salvation—you. You have saved us all by your work as true God and man. Lord, as we head to church tomorrow, we are reminded of how you are our Good Shepherd and that you lead your flock to greener pastures and still waters. Please restore my soul to you. As we come together as part of your flock, we pray that you will never leave us; please shepherd and carry us forever. Moreover, because of what you have done in restoring us to the Father’s good grace, please give us the boldness to share this good news with others who are not yet part of your flock. Amen

Written through Pastor Roger Emmons

God demonstrates his strength and power; they do not come in judging and condemning people but in blessing and forgiving them. Jesus has saved you through the forgiveness of sins.
