I’m praying for you, Barack Obama

God, give this man wisdom straight from You.  We come against the assignments of satan, the agendas of hell and we declare TRUTH over his mind, his heart, his will, his emotions.  God break what needs to be broken.  Shake what needs to be shaken.  Remove any veils of deception and the influence of lies.  Bring him out of alternate realities.  Bring him into YOUR reality — lead him into all truth.  Circumcise his heart.  Purify his intentions.  May he come to know Jesus Christ as his LORD and Savior, and may he bow to no one else — no man, no woman, no world leader, no politician, no evil or demonic influence.  May he rule justly and pass righteous laws.  Safeguard him from the company of corrupt and evil people.  Use him to lead this nation back to YOU, LORD.  Keep him safe.  Protect him.  Give your angels charge over him and his family.

LORD Jesus, we trust in You and You alone.  You are our refuge, our strong tower.  You are our hope and we lift our eyes to You alone.  Be glorified and exalted again in this nation.

We love You, LORD.  All that we have is Yours.  Truly.

In JESUS’ name…. AMEN.

Return to the LORD.

But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the LORD.  And the LORD told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected Me as their King.   As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking Me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you.  Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do.”  1 Samuel 7:6-9

We have asked God for a king — and a king He has given us.

I am really hesitant to say what I’m about to say.  But for those who have ears to hear, hear what I’m about to say — and take it immediately to God.  If it lines up with your spirit, ask God for wisdom and direction.  And if not, please feel free to reject it.  I am certainly not saying “thus says the LORD”… I am simply saying what is and has been weighing heavily on my heart.

I have really gotten into politics this year.  No matter which side you’re from, you know that there was a lot hinged on this election.  Morally, more than anything.  And a few weeks ago, I was especially stirred up.  There are certain issues that I disagreed with Senator Obama on, but they were issues I could overlook (healthcare, his economic agenda).  Abortion was not one of those areas.  I could not overlook it.  50 million lives.  They cannot be justified in any way, shape or form.  So, I decided to speak up.  And several of you wordpressers with liberal views received a visit from me on your blog.  And though I tried to be polite, I wasn’t one bit compassionate towards your views.  I told you a thing or two.  And I’m certain you didn’t like it.  You told me so.  And after many exciting exchanges between us, God spoke to me one morning while I was driving to work.

He said, “What are you doing?”  And I confidently replied, “I’m helping these people to see the truth.”  He replied, “I know.  Stop.

The next few minutes of my drive to work were mostly silent.  I felt a heaviness rest on my heart.  He didn’t say anything yet, but I could feel it – a sadness for this country.  So much so, that tears started forming in my eyes.   Finally, I couldn’t resist asking: “It’s going to get bad, isn’t it?”  He nodded.  The heaviness became more weighty and I could feel that dreadful lump forming in my throat.  I wanted to bawl — not just for myself, but for my country, your country, our country.  I could tell He was sad too — infinitely more than I was.

One week later, I lost my job.  And through it all, I remained pretty well composed —  I had no fear and still have no fear about it.  I know that losing my job wasn’t what He was preparing  me for.  It’s something yet to come.

Times are going to change.  America has been so great and so strong for decades, but we have turned against Him.  If you have known me, or even read this blog, for any length of time, you know that I am extremely optimistic — even to a fault (if there is one).  I believe that God is good 100% of the time and that He always causes us to walk in triumph (that’s what His Word says).  I have not once, that I can remember, ever prophesied gloom and doom over anything or anyone.  My mindset is: Mercy triumphs over judgment.  And I still hold to all of these things.  But I cannot shake off this heaviness.  I cannot rid my mind of what He told me.  And I actually don’t think that things changing will be solely a result of Barack Obama being our president-elect; though I do think he will intensify things.  Barack Obama is going to be my President; I respect him and have already started to pray for him.  I wish no ill-will towards him personally or any of his family — or his presidency, in general.  But I do think he is going to make decisions that will open our country up to attack from the enemy.

So…. what do we do?  I feel God nudging me to do the following:

  • Get your house in order.  In other words, be wise.  Especially financially.  Get things in order.  Be ready for anything.  Really, we should always live like this.  But if you never have before, now is a really good time to start.
  • Pray.  Pray without ceasing.  Pray for our country.  Pray for our President.  Pray for loved ones — especially for those who do know Jesus Christ as their LORD and Savior.
  • Come back to your first love, Jesus.  If you’ve gone astray and your heart has chased after other lovers, now is the time to repent and come back to Him.  Forsake all other distractions and get back to Him.  Don’t wait.  Don’t hesitate.  Do it quickly.  Make Him your refuge.  Know His promises.  Get to a place with Him where you know that you could be entirely sufficient in Him and Him alone.

That’s it.  That’s all I have to say.  And may I just say: This is not the blog I wanted to write tonight?  I wanted to come on here and say: “The election is over.  Let’s pray for Barack Obama, but I’m tired of talking about it… so let’s not.”  I wanted to write of intimacy with God, of His promises, of going deeper in His heart, falling more in love with Him.  I wanted to write about anything that didn’t have anything at all to do with the election or politics.  But instead, I felt strongly that I should write this.  Again, please do NOT, in anyway, take this as a “thus says the LORD”.  Ask Him for yourself.  If He doesn’t say this to you, first double-check and make sure you’re listening, and when you do, if He still doesn’t say anything about this… dismiss it.  Really.  I’m not God.  Neither am I a prophet.  I didn’t hear God’s audible voice.  The heaven’s didn’t open.  I didn’t see 10 visions that were confirmed by 12 people that also had 10 visions.  I’m just a girl that felt God speak to her.  Nevertheless, draw close to God.  Do not delay.  The time is short.  Seek God while He may be found. His arms are outstretched for you. He loves you. In Him, we never need to have fear – even in times like this.  He will never leave us.  He will never forsake us.  In Him, you are protected.  You are safe.  Make Him your refuge.

Happy Election Day

Aren’t you glad to live in America?  Aren’t you glad we have the freedom to step out of our houses, travel to the polling places, and vote freely – with no intimidation or fear?

Do you support abortion?  I don’t.  But I’m glad we live in a country where we both can have and voice our opinions freely.

Raising Flag

Today I pray for honest elections.

I pray that people are waking up and seeking God concerning who to vote for.  I pray that people have not relied on the media or the newspaper or their neighbor or even their own perspectives or prior opinions to tell them how to vote.  I pray that you go to vote with confidence, knowing that you’ve researched the issues and candidates from every angle and have picked the candidates and amendments and referendums to vote for that will exalt righteousness and truth across our land.

But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD. –Joshua 24:15

I pray that our country will look forward and move forward to the best days America has ever had.  I pray that God would supercede and overcome the failings and weaknesses of whichever candidate is elected.  I pray that the next President will fall humbly before God and seek His wisdom for guiding this country.

Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. –Isaiah 55:6

I pray for safety for our next President — physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally.  I pray that those who oppose our country, those who seek to destroy us, would be confounded and thwarted.

No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment will be shown to be in the wrong. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD. -Isaiah 54:17

I pray that satan’s strategies for our country would be exposed and destroyed.  I pray confusion into the enemy’s camp.

Then Saul and all his men assembled and went to the battle. They found [their enemies] in total confusion, striking each other with their swords. -1 Samuel 14:20

I pray for the peace and vindication of Israel.  I pray for a President that will fight and defend Israel, no matter what the cost.

For whoever touches [Israel] touches the apple of My eye. -Zechariah 2:8

I pray for unity for democrats, for republicans, for independents to join together.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. -Galatians 3:28

I pray a hedge of protection around this nation, around our allies, around those who stand for righteousness and justice.

Those who look to Him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.

This poor man called, and the LORD heard him;
He saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him,
and He delivers them.

Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.

Fear the LORD, you His saints,
for those who fear Him lack nothing.

The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
-Psalm 34:5-10

Most of all, I pray that this country will turn back to God.  Hope for this country rests solely in Him.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.  -Psalm 33:12

Use Your Vote to Save Lives

Life footprint

What Science says about life…..

Day 1: Of the 200,000,000 sperm that try to penetrate the mother’s egg cell, only one succeeds. At that very moment, a new and unique individual is formed. All of the inherited features of this new person are already set – whether it’s a boy or girl, the color of the eyes, the color of the hair, the dimples of the cheeks and the cleft of the chin. He or she is smaller than a grain of sugar, but the instructions are present for all that this person will ever become. The first cell soon divides in two. Each of these new cells divides again and again as they travel toward the womb in search of a protected place to grow.

What God’s Word says about life…..

For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.

So whether you look at it from a worldly/scientific standpoint or from a moral/religious standpoint, the facts are the same: Life begins at conception.

All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be? Do you realize how many lives were entirely planned out that never got to be lived? 50 million.

Enough is enough. Vote for life. Vote to end abortion.

I’m voting for Jesus

Tomorrow is it.  Tomorrow will determine who will lead this country — and in which direction we’ll go.

I’m ready for it be over.  I’ve prayed.  I’ve researched.  I’ve prayed.  I’ve debated.  I’ve argued.  I’ve prayed.  I’ve done what I could to stand up for my personal convictions.  Now, I’m ready to see God move.

I’m tired of division.  I’m tired of arguing.  I don’t care who you are and what you believe and how much you disagree with my views.  I’m ready to love you.  For better or for worse.  This is America.  And neither of us want to see everything we’ve fought for go down the drain.

You know who I’m voting for this election? Jesus.  I want His righteousness and justice to reign in this country again.

Yes, I pray for a lot of things, but that’s what I really want.  Of course we want a President who’s going to protect our country.  But the strength and wisdom of a man will always fail.  Only God can defend us against our foes – for they are many.  Only God can bring our economy out of shambles.  He’s the One that can give us creative insight, new inventions, supernatural wisdom.  That’s what we need.  As much as I support our troops, risking their lives, fighting with such bravery in courage over there in Iraq — they cannot defeat terrorism.  They cannot scatter our enemies.  But God can.  That’s Who needs to reign in this country.  No man or woman can solve the problems we are facing.

Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.   –Isaiah 9:7

Regardless of the outcome of this election, will you commit with me to hand this great country back over to the One who established America as the country we love?  Will you commit with me to pray for our President?  Will you grit your teeth and lay down your precious opinions (trust me, I know how hard it is) to come together and unite?

The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad;
let the distant shores rejoice.

Clouds and thick darkness surround Him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.

Fire goes before him
and consumes His foes on every side.

His lightning lights up the world;
the earth sees and trembles.

The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
before the Lord of all the earth.

The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
and all the peoples will see His glory.     –Psalm 97

Letter to an Undecided Voter

Dear Fellow American,

This is the most important election you have ever voted in.  There are a lot of issues on the table.  The economy.  The war.  Taxes.  Should they be lowered or should they stay the same?  Wealth.  Should it continue to be a reward for hard work, education, perseverance and determination?  Or should we spread it around?

Those are good questions.  Perhaps they’re the questions that have prevented you from making a decision.  Whatever the case, I’m going to pose a question for you right now that’s going to take the “un” off of the decision that you need to make.  A question for which there is no gray area.  A question that will catapult you on one side of the fence or the other.

Which is more important to you: life or your wallet?

Yes, that is the real question at stake in this election.  But let’s be fair.  Let’s look at both sides of the coin.  When I voted, I didn’t know what all of the Amendments and Referendums meant — so I researched them.  I researched the pros and the cons for each one and then I made my decision.

Argument from those in favor of voting for their wallet:

  • Senator Obama promises tax cuts for 95% of Americans.  Cutting taxes will reduce the financial strain on working families, families facing foreclosure, families who have a parent who has lost a job.
  • One of the greatest burdens on American families is a stack of medical bills incurred from a family member with a major illness.  Senator Obama promises healthcare for all Americans, whereas right now, certain families are uninsurable.
  • Senator Obama promises to place a greater tax on the rich, taking a portion of their money to account for others who are unable to even put food on the table.

Argument from those in favor of voting for the protection of life:

  • Senator McCain believes that life begins at conception.

    Of the 200,000,000 sperm that try to penetrate the mother’s egg cell, only one succeeds. At that very moment, a new and unique individual is formed. All of the inherited features of this new person are already set – whether it’s a boy or girl, the color of the eyes, the color of the hair, the dimples of the cheeks and the cleft of the chin. He or she is smaller than a grain of sugar, but the instructions are present for all that this person will ever become. The first cell soon divides in two. Each of these new cells divides again and again as they travel toward the womb in search of a protected place to grow.

  • In the United States it is legal to abort a baby up until the day of birth.  In the next presidential term, at least two to three Supreme Court Justices will retire and new justices will be appointed by the President.  Senator McCain plans to appoint justices that are Pro-Life, in hopes that Roe vs. Wade, a law that has cost 50 million lives, will finally be overturned.
  • In a Partial Birth Abortion (D and X procedure) babies are “partially aborted” so the head is still in the cervix but the body is out. While in this position the live baby is still considered a “non-human” and has no protection under the law. The live baby’s brains are sucked out after being crushed by blunt instruments. Organs are harvested and sold to “researchers”. The baby receives no anesthesia and is alive until killed by the doctor.  Senator Obama supports laws that would revoke a baby’s rights, in the case that he or she is accidentally born during a partial birth abortion, allowing that baby to still be put to death.  The list of laws that Senator Obama supports that promote the aborting of innocent lives is endless.  He plans to make abortions easier and to use government funding to back them.
  • Every day in America over 3,000 babies die painful deaths by suction abortion, dismemberment, being torn limb from limb, prostaglandin hormones and now by being brutally killed seconds before delivery.
  • Since Roe vs. Wade, nearly 50 million babies have been aborted.  If Senator Obama becomes President, he will elect pro-abortion Supreme Court Justices, which will increase that number.
  • Nearly all abortions are done for reasons of convenience, not for any medical or physical reason.

What’s more important?  95% of Americans receiving a tax break — or 50 millions lives, defenseless lives, voiceless lives, lives that are planned from the moment of conception being spared from murder?  But I just lost my job.  What’s John McCain going to do about that, you ask.  I just lost my job too.  Why?  Because of the bad economy.  But I would give a lot more than a job, my wallet, the plummeting of my bank account to ensure that tomorrow, 3,000 tiny little lives don’t have to aborted (brutally killed).

Each and every one of us will stand before God on judgment day to give an account of every decision — good or bad — that we have ever made.  In America, we are blessed to have a political voice.  On November 4th, your vote will either be for or against the ending of abortion.

What’s more important — precious lives or your wallet?  As I said, there is no gray area in this question.  There is no maybe.  There is no undecided.  Ignorance may be bliss, but you are no longer ignorant.  You know the facts.  You know what’s at stake.  So what’s it going to be?

Sincerely,

A Fellow American

My God’s Bigger than a Politician

I love stories like the one of Jonathan and his armor bearer taking on the entire Philistine army.

Or David, a mere shepherd boy, taking on a giant that is feared even by the King and his troops. Youngest in his family. Chosen as King of all of Israel.

Or Gideon, the least of the least — the youngest in his family and part of the weakest tribe in Manasseh. But God calls him “mighty warrior” and chooses him to defeat the Midianites, their enemy.

Or Esther, an orphan and a Jew that becomes Queen and defeat’s Haman’s decree to kill all of the Jews in Israel.

Or Abraham and Sarah — father of nations? They couldn’t even have children. The Bible says their bodies were “as good as dead”. But God said their descendents would be as numerous as the stars in the sky — and they were.

Or Joseph, sold into slavery by his own brothers. He finally gains favor, then is accused of something he didn’t do and is thrown in prison. Waits and waits for God to move. God doesn’t forget him and makes him the right hand man to Pharoah.

Or Moses, a baby that was supposed to be put to death – instead ends up being raised by the ruler’s daughter. Is plucked out of the King’s house to lead God’s people to the Promised Land. Studders, doesn’t like to speak in front of large groups.

Or Jesus, our LORD and Saviour — a carpenter, a Jew, born in a stable, rides in on a donkey, saves the world and completely defeats satan be being beaten, broken, and mutilated, dying a “criminal’s death” on a cross.

The Bible, in my humble opinion, is a book of underdogs. Of unlikely candidates. Of weak and foolish things and people. And I love it because, since God is with them, every one of them wins, every time.

I love how God works. It gives me hope — that He can use me. And if you look around you, I bet you’ll see God doing the very same thing today. I know I do. I look at this election — and I see God working.

I see a very likely candidate – by numbers, by polls, by popularity, by money. And I see an underdog. An underdog that represents life and morals and values and righteous decrees. Yes, I see a man that’s weak and that’s failed and that certainly cannot repair our wounded country. But that same man stands up for what’s right. Abortion is not right. Taking an innocent life because it’s nothing more than an “incovenience” and a “mistake” is repulsive to God. 50 millions lives. Their innocent blood cries out to God, just as Abel’s blood did when Cain murdered him. I challenge you to find anything in the nature of God or His Word that encourages us or even allows us to put our wallets before the lives of those who cannot to defend themselves.

Life and family and morals may be behind in the polls, but my heart knows no fear. For nothing restrains the LORD from saving by many or by few. (1 Samuel 14:6)

Esther has been summoned to the Palace….. for SUCH A TIME AS THIS.

My God’s Bigger than an Army

For nothing restrains the LORD from saving by many or by few. (1 Samuel 14:6)  Do you know who coined that phrase?  A man who was getting ready to take on an entire army, accompanied only by “the young man carrying his armor”.

His name was Jonathan.  He was the son of a King.  The Bible lays out for us the major events in the story, but leaves out a lot of little details.  Like — what prompted Jonathan to suddenly turn to “the young man carrying his armor” and say, “Come and let us cross over to the garrison of these uncircumcised Philistines; perhaps the LORD will work for us, for the LORD is not restrained to save by many or by few”?  I’ve come up with my own version of what prompted this outburst.  Would you like to hear it?

I think Jonathan was back at camp, sitting around the fire.  It was the end of a long, weary day of travel.  The other soldiers were milling around the camp.  Did you see the Philistines?  There’s no way we can take them.  There are thousands of them.  There are only a few hundred of us. Jonathan’s heard the same grumbling all day long. He’s learned to shut it out, but this time he lets it get to him.  Anger and dissatisfaction burn in his heart — not towards the men, but towards the cowardice, fearful attitude that’s crept into them.  He props his feet up and leans back against a tree.  He stares into the fire.  He thinks of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob — the One he serves.  You aren’t weak, LORD.  You aren’t threatened by those who defy You, who serve idols made of wood and stone.  You don’t tremble at a thousand feeble, godless men beating their drums and raising their swords. He pauses and reminds himself of his best friend.  A shepherd boy defeated the giant that taunted Your troops day and night — because You, the God of creation, was with him. Jonathan’s eyes narrow and he stares deeper into the fire.  Then he looks away.  Standing back against the tree, a twenty yards away, is his armor bearer.  Jonathan gets up and walks his way.  I have an idea, he whispers, then keeps walking, away from the soldiers, away from the bright fire, and into the dark forest.  The armor bearer follows.  When they reach the clearing, Jonathan stops.

This is where we collide with the story written about in the Bible.  Jonathan says to his armor bearer: “Come and let us cross over to the Philistines’ garrison that is on yonder side.” The Bible makes it clear that Jonathan did not tell his father, King Saul, where he was going.

Jonathan and his armor bearer travel a great distance towards the Philistines’ garrison.  It’s at this point that Jonathan lets his faithful companion in on his great idea.  “Come and let us cross over to the garrison of these uncircumcised Philistines; perhaps the LORD will work for us, for the LORD is not restrained to save by many or by few.”

Now, catch the armor bearer’s reply.  It’s astounding.  “And his armor bearer said to him, “Do all that is in your heart; turn yourself, and here I am with you according to your desire.” I think someone should write a story about this armor bearer someday.

When they reach the garrison, Jonathan leans over and tells the armor bearer the game plan.  Let’s cross over until they can see us.  Once they see us, if they say “Wait until we come down to you”, we’ll know it’s not God and we won’t attack.  But, if instead, they say to us, “Come up here,” we will go up, for it will be a sign from God that He has given them into our hands.

When the Philistines see the two men, they say, “Look!  The Hebrews are crawling out of the holes they’ve been hiding in.”  Then they say, “Come up here so we can tell you something.”

Jonathan leans over to his armor bearer, “There’s our sign!  Come up after me, for the LORD has given them into the hands of Israel.”  The two climb up the hill on their hands and knees (a very poor military strategy).  When they reached the Philistines, the Bible says that the men fell before Jonathan and the armor bearer killed them.

The earth began to tremble, and in the field and among the people, even the garrison and raiders trembled.  There was great confusion among the troops and they turned against each other, striking each other dead.

The story concludes in verse 23, by saying: “So the LORD delivered Israel that day.”

Yes, He most certainly did.  I’d like to read the headline in the newspaper on this one.  TWO MEN TAKE ON ENTIRE ARMY AND WIN.

What army do you want to take on today?  And let’s not pick an enemy we could easily defeat on our own.  I like this story because it’s not logical or feasible or possible in human standards.

What’s it going to be, my friend?

Prosperity in the Midst of Famine – part 3

It’s not difficult to feel hopeless about the world’s economic state. Especially since the media is always there, just like a faithful friend (or perhaps more like an unwanted enemy) to remind you of the decay and destruction and death that will soon be poured onto your finances. That is why, in times like these, I strongly encourage use of the OFF and MUTE buttons. But shouldn’t I be aware of everything that’s going on right now? You ask. No. Don’t fool yourself. Just as I said on Monday: The righteous walk by faith, NOT by sight (2 Cor 5:7, Hebrews 10:38). That’s not a call to deny reality. It’s a call to a greater reality — God’s Word, because it doesn’t return void.

God said that He’s set before us LIFE and DEATH, BLESSINGS and CURSES. Then He says this: Choose LIFE (Deuteronomy 30:19). He also tells us that there is LIFE and DEATH in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). Don’t declare over your finances and over your life the destruction that you hear radiating from the speakers on your TV (or the internet or the newspaper). No. How we fight this financial crisis we’re in is not be talking about it or reading about it or studying how much worse so-and-so says it’s going to get. You want a real weapon? A weapon that cuts through decay and destruction and death and lies? A weapon that’s stronger than any two-edged sword? Good. Let me pull it out for you to examine.

And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19) Wait, you say, the media’s been telling me that we’re dead meat if we don’t get a President who’s going to provide for us. Don’t look to man. Look to God. He is your source. Use His Word, your weapon, to defeat what’s trying to defeat you. Regardless of who or who doesn’t become President, God is the One who is going to provide for you. LIFT YOUR EYES TO HIM.

Lift your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these [stars]?
He who brings out the starry host one by one,
and calls them each by name.
Because of His great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing. (Isaiah 40:26)

Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
look at the earth beneath;
the heavens will vanish like smoke,
the earth will wear out like a garment
and its inhabitants die like flies.
But My salvation will last forever,
My righteousness will never fail. (Isaiah 51:6)

I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?

My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—
He who watches over you will not slumber;

Indeed, He who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

The sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

The LORD will keep you from all harm—
He will watch over your life;

The LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore. (Psalm 121)
