The Lord … answered me and delivered me from all my fear. - Ps 34:4

Reflection. A Bible that Abraham Lincoln often used as President falls open easily to Psalm 34.  There is a smudge at one spot where the President apparently rested his fingers and meditated.  The verse is:  “I sought the Lord, and He answered me and delivered me from all my fear.”

Prayer. Calm my fears, O Lord, and relieve my anxiety.  Let me place all my hopes in You.  And when the storms threaten, assure me that You will guide me safely home.
