A Prayer for September

At the start of this beautiful month of September, when summer turns into fall, where we transition from the more carefree summer months to the more scheduled months of fall activities. Leaving the longer days of sunlight in the fresh outdoors, and entering into the warmth and soft glows of candles in our homes, spending time with those we love.

May this be our prayer as we navigate all that this month may bring to us ...

Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
for my hope is in Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress where I will not be shaken.
My victory and honor come from God alone.
He is my refuge, a rock
where no enemy can reach me.
O my people, trust in Him at all times.
Pour out your heart to Him,
for He is our refuge.

(Psalm 62:5-8 NLT)

Thank You, Lord, for these words and these reminders as I turn the page of my calendar to September. A month filled with joy (and my birthday month!), and the start of the beautiful, wonderful season of fall (a favorite!) ... and also, a month full of activity (many days filled with events and happenings). 

May I remember to wait quietly before You, each day, to place all my trust and hope in You alone, and to pour out my heart to You each day. For You are my refuge, and the giver of all that is good. May I watch each day for Your gifts, Your love, and all the ways You will be at work in this beautiful month of September ...


  1. This is encouraging, Cherry. I am copying the Scripture to refer to often.

    1. Yes, Janis, these words are so encouraging - I could read them over and over again, each day. So true, and life-giving ...
