Discussion for Psalms 121

    Our God is so loving, comforting and always available for His children. His Words in Psalm 121 project this. Thank you God for your love, care, and protection. Without which many of us could have been wiped out by the wicked one. I remember how sick I used to be. Medical doctors did their best to heal me but to no avail. However God healed me and took me out of my bed where I laid for many years.

    God's safety assurance prayer. Very powerful and peaceful. The very first psalm that I got to know as one of my dad's prayers for us each time we are about to leave home to travel out. May His name remain sacred and mighty!
