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¬†
