Under His Wings

"He shall cover you with His feathers. And under His wings you shall take refuge."  Psalm 91:4

Have you ever prayed the Psalms aloud?  If not, I invite you to do so.  For me personally, speaking or praying the words of the psalmist brings peaceful moments, hope-filled days, and strength when I am weary. How wonderful to know that during each moment of our lives, the safest resting place we have is found under His wings.  Below is the Psalm I prayed this morning, along with a meaningful song entitled, "Under His Wings" by the Sisters.

Prayer: "O, God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.  So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.  Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.  So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands.  My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night, for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.  My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me."  Amen.  Psalm 63:1-8 (ESV)

  1. That was beautiful Carolyn! Under His wings He covers us so we can see again..How comforting.

    David the Psalmist said seven time a day do I praise you.(119:164)

    From the rising of the sun to the going down the Lord's name is to be praised(113:3)

    As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for you, O God.( 42:1)


    He quenches our deepest thirst, our wounds are healed, our strength is renewed and we are placed beyond the reach of the enemy!
