We have need to use this prayer at all times!

(Charles Spurgeon)

“Do not forsake me, O Lord!
 O my God, do not be far from me!” Psalm 38:21 

We frequently pray that God would not forsake us in the hour of trial and temptation–but we often forget that we have need to use this prayer at all times! There is no moment of our life, however holy, in which we can do without His constant upholding. Whether in light or in darkness, in communion or in temptation–we alike need the prayer: “Do not forsake me, O Lord! O my God, do not be far from me!”

We cannot do without continued aid from above. Let this be then, your daily prayer: 

  “Father! Do not forsake Your helpless child, lest I fall by the hand of the enemy. 

   Shepherd! Do not forsake Your wayward lamb, lest I wander from the safety of the fold. 

   Great Gardener! Do not forsake Your frail plant, lest I wither and die. 

   Do not forsake me in my joys–lest they absorb my heart.

   Do not forsake me in my sorrows–lest I murmur against You. 

   Do not forsake me–for without You I am as weak as water. 

   Do not forsake me–for my path is dangerous and full of snares, and I cannot do without Your guidance. 

   Do not be far from me, O Lord–for trouble is near, and no other can help me. 

   Do not forsake me, O Lord! O my God, do not be far from me!

   Do not leave me or forsake me, O God my Savior–at any moment of my life!”

“Hold me up, and I shall be safe!” Psalm 119:117
