Day 12 of 21 Days Of Prayer


April 19, 2024


An inspiration for those days when you have just simply "lost your way" and God comes to you in the darkness and breathes life into your bones.


Day 12 – April 19 

Contributed by Christine O'Brien 


Psalm 30


I thank you and praise you, Lord,

   For saving me from disaster

I cried out, “Help me, dear God;

   I’m frightened and have lost my way.”

You came to me in the darkness;

   You breathed life into my bones.


You plucked me from the abyss;

   You healed me and made me whole.

You rescued me from despair;

   You turned my lament into dancing.

You lifted me up; you took off

   My mourning, you clothed me with joy.


Sing to the Lord, you who love Him;

   Thank Him from the depths of your hearts.

For though He may seem to be absent,

   In His presence is eternal life.

Tears may linger when night falls,

   But joy arrives with the dawn.


Therefore my soul blesses Him

With every breath that I take.

My song will thank Him forever,

   And my silence

will be filled with His praise.


Looking Ahead

from the 2024 National Prayer:

We are saved by grace through faith,

released from the darkness that once held us captive

and now free to walk in the newness of life in You.


Light dispels darkness and exposes what is hidden. . .

By You Lord we can take courage and keep the faith

We fear no evil for You are with us.


May God continue to bless our prayer journey together.
