Prayer for God’s Steadfast Presence

Father, who art in heaven and on earth,

Creator of All that is Good, who is here and attentive to us.

Your steadfast love never wavers.

Your mercies are new every morning.

Every. Morning.

Without fail.

 

You are a rock fortress to whom we can go,

You are a mountain cave we can hide in when the storm comes,

You are the cherry picker platform on the end of the firetruck ladder,

Coming to rescue us.

You are the one in the mask, face shield, and PPE,

Saying, “I will not leave you.”

 

You are our stability,

You never change.

Yesterday, today and tomorrow,

You are Love.

Your love does not falter.

Your mercy and justice never tremble.

Your compassion does not hesitate.

Your wisdom is not indecisive.

Your ways are higher than our ways.

 

Creator of all that is good,

The word for the day is stability.

Our stability is You.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.

 

To You be the glory.

 

Amen
