    This psalm has been my support in times of need when I am fasting, asking God for deliverance, guidance and protection from fears and work of the enemy. When I am afraid it has brought me comfort. I have known this psalm from childhood and it continues to be powerful everyday even as I age. Praise be to God for His word that revives, encourages, and reassures. Amen.
