"No sooner had these priestly bearers of the ark
waded into the waters at the edge of the Jordan,
which overflows all its banks during
the entire season of the harvest,
than the waters flowing from upstream halted,
backing up in a solid mass for a very great distance..."
Yes, Lord, you are our ark!
You protect us from the raging waters and give safe passage.
You are still alive today.
You are our only hope of salvation.
Save us, O Lord!
You are our refuge and strength.
We praise you and thank you, O Lord, for your protection.
You know all things, O Lord Jesus.
You know that we love you and trust in you.
Help us to forgive each other. It is so hard!
Help the gang members of one gang forgive those of a different gang.
Help those of one church forgive the other church.
We all believe in you. Show us the way. Give us the strength.
We ask this all in the name of Jesus The Lord.
