Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me.”
Righteous God, I need Your strength today and every day. Of myself, I can do nothing, but I can do all things only through Jesus Christ, Who will strengthen me. I do need this strength almost every day, especially the older I get. You can uphold me by Your righteous right hand, and only by Your Spirit can I endure. When my own strength fails, Yours takes over, and I thank You for having access to You through Jesus Christ, in Whose precious name I pray. Amen.
Psalm 28:8 “The Lord is the strength of his people; he is the saving refuge of his anointed.”
God my Father, we as the children of God are not our own source of strength, and that’s good because I personally don’t have a lot of strength left after turning 60-some years old. Thankfully, You, God, are the source of our strength and can keep us going in ways that we cannot of ourselves. I depend on You every day, and this is what You really desire, anyway. Help us, Your beloved children, to focus on You, the object of our strength and the source of our salvation. In Jesus Christ’s great name I pray. Amen.
