Building Our Home

Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it. Psalm 127:1 Dear heavenly Father, we are interested in what You may have planned for us, but at the same time we admit we are afraid. Will You ask us to walk into areas of our lives we have never even talked about before with each other? We are working hard, because we want to be obedient to You. You are our God, our almighty God, our Savior, and our Redeemer. You gave Your life, Lord, that we might have life. We are most thankful for Your gift to us. Is there any less that we can do for You? We may waiver, we may falter, but we both commit to You today our desire to become all as a wife and husband that You desire and have planned for us. We need You, O gracious and patient Lord. We ask You to strengthen us when we weaken. Chastise us if we refuse. Lift us if we stumble. Thank You Father, for hearing our prayer, which we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen

Denise,
Isaiah 43:1-3--"Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name, *thou art mine.*

When thou passest through the waters, *I will be with thee*; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God the Holy One of Israel, thy Savior."

Psalm 61:1-4--"Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee,

when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle forever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
