The Cure for Oppression and Trouble

The Cure for Oppression and Trouble, by Gregory A. Johnson
by Gregory A. Johnson

At various times throughout our lives, we all find ourselves oppressed. Trouble abounds in our day. May we constantly run to the LORD, for He is our safety!

Beloved, run into the arms of our loving LORD. He will take care of you today and forever.

Scripture: “The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble” (Psalm 9:9, NLT).

Prayer: Father, I thank you for the safety that is available in you. I pray today for all those who are oppressed and troubled. Comfort and strengthen them. Give us all a deep hunger for you and your Word; it is where we find guidance for all of our problems, and comfort for our souls. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
