Picture of Jesus holding a Bible with outstretched arms.  Wording says: When I am afraid, I will trust God.
Verse is taken from Psalm 56:3-4
Psalm 56:3-4

David said when I am afraid, I will trust in God. David turns to The Lord when he’s afraid. He knows that the Almighty can take his fear away and save him.

At this point in David’s life, Saul is wanting to murder him. As a result, Saul has an army of men looking for him. If that isn’t enough there is now also a crowd of men from Gath, chasing him out of their city. He has been running all day and has finally found refuge in a cave.

David begins to write a Psalm of lament. He writes that he will not fear what the people chasing him will do. David is aware that he is made of skin and bones and that his flesh is weak. However, God is eternal and the Almighty. So David rightfully places his trust in God and praises Him for who He is.

Picture is of a cat with it's ears straight out from his head.  You can only see the eyes, bit of it's head and ears above a table (as if he was hiding and afraid to come out).  Words say: what time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee.

My Prayer for Psalm 56:3-4

Heavenly Father

Thank you that I am your child as David is. When I am in a situation that calls on me to be brave allow me to put my trust in you, give me the courage and trust that you gave David.

May I always trust and praise you Lord, now and forever. You are above ALL others and so when the times come for me to stand strong in you, give me the courage, the faith and the want, to stand tall.

Thank you Lord. In the name of your son and my Saviour, Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
