Isaiah 26: 1-4

10 February, 2021

In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: We have a strong city; God makes salvation its walls and ramparts…Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal. Isaiah 26:1-4

God of Salvation, you have always had the concerns of your people at heart and we glorify your holy name for never abandoning us, but being for us an unshakable rock of grace and faith and a firm foundation we can rely on and place our trust in. You have released us from slavery to sin and redeemed us to a life, everlasting, and in the kingdom of your peace. We thank our Lord Jesus, our Savior, for washing us pure with his precious and sanctifying blood.

You are our strength in our weaknesses and pour your grace on all believers, by their faith in Jesus Christ the Lord. Lord, you protect and prosper all those who diligently and with wisdom and fear of your Holy Name uprightly discern and follow the perfect plans made for them by a loving and just God.

We establish ourselves as children of God by our baptism in the Holy Spirit and by our firm faith in Jesus as the rock of our redemption and deliverance. God, you empower with your grace all those who rely and repose in your trust.

We are exhorted to increase our faith and decrease our attachment to worldly pleasures and temptations, focusing unswayingly on the infallible and indestructible nature of our Mighty God. As our sanctuary of strength and righteousness which cannot be challenged, we pray that you will continue to vindicate those who apply to you in humble and sincere appeal, in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen
