My City of Refuge

You are my City of Refuge from Joshua 20

Lord, once again I've run into your strong tower

You've heard my words,

my heart,

my intentions before you

I'm trusting they are fitting and pleasing in your sight

Where they are not, please show me

I wait for you

as I stay in your guarded city

Help me to remain steadfast and sure of your Word to me

Your promises and your Covenantal Blessing

I will not surrender that which you've given me

just as you will not surrender what is yours.

And we are yours

In the conflict of this season

where I don't feel you, I don’t see you

but I know you

I trust in your goodness, your mercy, your working

I trust you will lead and guide me, each step

that I may take no wrong turn

that I may not look away from you

that the light of your face shine on us

that I may not speak a word out of place

that I be led by your Spirit

- guided by your light

I will stay put, in peace

Where I don’t know what to do

what to say

what to think anymore

I remain in you

I will keep myself still

I will not be at war with you, but at peace in this place

I will trust in your keeping

in your leading

in your dealing

Trusting that you are doing something mighty


changing our circumstances for good

according to your will

I pray for peace and prosperity in this land

That you will cause this war to cease

and we will live in safe and secure dwellings

Where violence and destruction is no longer

Where we will no longer see any enemy

Where tyranny will be far from us

Where we call our walls salvation and our gates praise

Be a wall of fire around us

Let your glory and power be seen within by everyone

Your work and your power

Your grace and your comfort

Your strength and endurance

You moulding and fashioning

Will be glorified in us


Psalm 61:1-5

Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. For you, God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
