PRAYER TO HOLD FAST
Prayer for July 25


Oh, Holy God, You are my anchor.
I always find You to be steady.
But daily I turn to grasp for freedom
And often in test I just stumble.
It's because I am at heart a rebel.
Lord, rescue me from my own folly
And instruct me how to be faithful.
When any test of faith should arrive
Then remind me of Your great goodness,
And restrict my heart from doubting.
Please strengthen my faith with great resolve
For quitting You is not an option.
To fail brings shame to Jesus
Who endured the cross for all mankind.
Your honor must be my prime object
And glory to God be my passion.


There are many things we look to for support and to keep us from drifting. God is the object. We do not hold on to him as much as he holds onto us. Jesus said of his children that "...no one shall snatch them out of the Fathers hand." John 10:29.There are times when we are tested or doubt but we can be confident that God will not forsake us.
