Scripture

Even when my way goes through valleys as dark as death, I will not be afraid, for You are close at my side. Your rod protects me and Your trusty shepherd's crook makes me feel secure, safe, and comforted.
Psalm 23:4 NLT, The Message, NCV, CEV

Prayer

When the clouds above are dark and foreboding and when it appears that defeat is the only possible outcome, I remember that You, Jesus, are with me, right at my side. Whether I walk through a dark alley or drive an open highway, I am protected, secure, and comforted by Your mighty hand.
