Pastor Zack Randles

Lord, Your Word tells us that You give strength to the weary, and You increase the power of the weak. You are our place to go when we are empty and our second wind when we are worn down.
How do You restore the weary warrior? If we wait on You, You will refill us. If we look to You, You will guide us. If we listen to You, You will lead us. You make broken wings soar and weak legs sprint. King David often calls You a fortress. You are a place of rest and peace no matter what comes to our gates.
Strengthen us today, God, as we acknowledge You. And be our fortress of peace when we run to You. I proclaim these things in the mighty name of Jesus.   Amen.
