Vindicate me, God, and plead my case against an ungodly nation;
a]Save me from the deceitful and unjust person!
2 For You are the God of my strength; why have You rejected me?
Why do I go about mourning b]because of the oppression of the enemy?
3 Send out Your light and Your truth, they shall lead me;
They shall bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your dwelling places.
4 Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God c]my exceeding joy;
And I will praise You on the lyre, God, my God.
5 Why are you d]in despair, my soul?
And why are you restless within me?
Wait for God, for I will e]again praise f]Him
For the g]help of His presence, my God.

So grateful to Lyneta Smith author of Curtain Call for sponsoring the Pray Every Day Show! Lyneta Smith thought she was having a breakdown, when in fact, she was having a breakthrough. Read the inspiring story of how she stepped out of her stage-perfect Christian life and into the journey toward healing and finally seeing God as a good, loving father.

Elizabeth Reynolds Turnage
I’m honored to have Elizabeth Turnage author of Recovery to Restoration: 60 Meditations for Finding Peace & Hope in Crisis as a sponsor this month.
It is not a matter of if, but when, a crisis will break into our lives. Whether it’s a natural disaster or relational disaster, a broken wrist or a broken marriage, a baby miscarried or justice miscarried, crisis thrusts us into a season of recovery. The journey of recovery can arouse many emotions: shock, fear, anxiety, doubt, grief, anger.
Elizabeth Reynolds Turnage soothes us in our distress with the surpassing peace and sure hope of the gospel. In each brief meditation, she offers Scripture, relevant stories, biblical encouragement, prayers, and suggested music, all of which point us to our deepest hope: God has written a story that takes us through recovery to restoration. God has begun his redemption work in us through Jesus, and one day, Jesus will return to restore all broken things. In that day, we will know the full joy of our restoration hope. Open this book and begin your journey from recovery to restoration.
Each meditation includes:
• A relevant Bible verse.
• A brief story related to waiting in a health care crisis.
• A gospel reality that brings peace and hope.
• A brief concluding prayer.
• One or two suggestions for further action—Bible reading, links to music, reflection questions, other calming activities.
