A Prayer for Times of Crisis: Psalm 46

God, You are my refuge and my strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore I will not fear, though the earth give way…
Psalm 46:1

Pray Psalm 46 A Prayer for Times of Crisis sincerely and from the heart knowing that God can do all things. Throughout this psalm, the invitation to be still and seek God takes place in the middle of chaos and worldly drama … not in a quiet sanctuary or in the stillness of life. As you pray this powerful psalm over your life and situation today, and perhaps over the turbulent issues of the world as well, listen for God’s gentle whisper amidst the conflict. No matter what circumstance you find yourself in, God is not only with you — He is in perfect control. All you have to do is believe and Trust Him.


A Prayer for Times of Crisis: Psalm 46

“God, You are my refuge and my strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore I will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the Holy place where my Most High dwells.
You are within me, Lord, I will not fall;
    You will help me at the break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
    You lift Your voice and the earth melts away.

The Lord Almighty is with me;
    the God of Jacob is my fortress.

Come and see what the Lord has done,
    the desolations He has brought on earth.
You, Lord, make wars cease
    to the ends of the earth.
You break the bow and shatter the spear;
    You burn the shields with fire.
You say to me, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted over all the earth.”

Yes, the Lord Almighty is with me now;
    the God of Jacob is my fortress everlasting.”
