DAILY READINGS: 1 Chronicles 16:1-43; Ezekiel 16:35-63; John 6:1-21

Save me, O God for the waters are come in unto my soul. Psalm 69:1

I’ve prayed this prayer, desperately, dozens of times. The NKJV says it this way, “Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck.” Many times my circumstances have all but overwhelmed me. But God has always saved me, often at the last minute. When the bills were overdue and the bank account was low, I cried out and the Lord saved me. When my life was in danger and fear gripped my soul, the Lord delivered me. When I lay sick on my bed wondering if my life would ever be the same, the Lord raised me up. Pray to Him today. —Shane Johnson

Though I perish I will pray, I will pray, I will pray;
Thou of life the Living Way, O, save me at the cross. —Fanny Crosby
