I can’t start my day, Lord Jesus, without first turning to You.
I need Your promised help to be able to see things through.
I need to know You’ll be walking with me, steadying me on my feet,
to handle any challenges today that I might possibly meet.
Of course, I know Your assurances, as written to us in Your Word;
but folding my hands in prayer to You reassures me that You’ve heard.
I’m relying on You for strength and peace and a faith that won’t retreat.
On paths my feet will tread, may I “see” beside my own, Your sandaled feet.
P. A. Oltrogge
