Sure Protection

Psalm of Sure Protection

Inspired by Psalm 91

If God is for us,
who can be against us?
And what does it matter,
if they are?

God –
the Creator of Heaven and Earth,
the Author of our Existence,
the Designer of our Earth,
the One who is
Time Beyond Time,
Life beyond Life,
Lord of Eternity,
Begetter of Light,
Source of all Love –
God is on our side.

If God is for us
then we have
no cause for worry,
no need to fret,
nothing to fear.

If God is for us
no threats can shake us,
no terrors unnerve us,
no traps can catch us,
no snares entangle us,
no sorrows can overwhelm us,
no suffering destroy us,
no dangers can frighten us,
no evils can harm us.

If God is for us
each day
is a cause for celebration,
each hour
is a source of delight,
each moment
is a blessing;

If God is for us
our every breath
is a sacrament.

And if we
are for God,
the earth is safe
in our keeping;
all creatures are blessed
by our kindness,
all people are comforted
by our presence;
no one need fear us
or have any cause to hate us

If we are for God
each day
is a cause for celebration,
each hour
is a source of delight,
each moment
is a blessing;

If we are for God,
all we are
and everything we do
is a sacrament.
