Persevere Despite the Challenge You Face:

Ellen J. Barrier

Nothing comes easy. We have to learn to know how to achieve the things we desire.
To get the best out of education, we must be willing to give all we have regardless, of the sacrifices we will have to make. That might mean spending less money; eating more vegetables than meat or watching television more often than going to movies. Or it might mean that we have to plant gardens and grow our vegetables and fruit.

Whatever sacrifices it takes to reach our goals, we have to be willing to persevere.

When others poke fun and some try to discourage us, we must persevere in the face of every challenge.

If there is someone or something blocking our path to success, we must find a way to go around. We can’t allow ourselves to be defeated by standing still or running away from challenges. We must be determined to persevere, despite the challenges we face. Security comes within the vein of perseverance.  With hope in God, victories are accomplished.

But the LORD is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil. 
2 Thessalonians 3:3 (King James Version Bible)

Humans Errors:

No one is above the probability to commit a wrongful act, which is why we need to pray and engage in conversations with others, offering encouragement and to believe in possibilities. We can do a lot more than we think, if we try listening to others and observing the behavior of an individual that is questionable.

If we look closely at the things noted in paragraph 3 below, in the quote, we see some symptoms of behavior that needs to be checked. This is not good behavior.

When we hear of ‘good people’ committing wrongful acts that those who knew them, would never have believed they were capable of doing – we then know that there is a probability that such things can happen to anyone.

“For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.” _Titus 3:3 (K.J.V)

It is for this purpose we shouldn’t judge others, but be ready to help friends and relatives, by encouraging them to talk about things that might be troubling them, before they become impossible to reach. 


If you knew of someone who were expressing some of the symptoms above, would you try to help them? If so, how would you approach them? How do you feel you might be able to help such an individual?

Grace be to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 11 Cor. 1:2

We define grace in the spiritual sense as God's mercy toward us that allows us to have things we aren't entitled to. There are times when we all, on occasion take life and its blessings for granted. It is very easy to get so involved in our daily endeavors and never pray or give God thanks for the things we have. We seem to never realize what life would be like, if we no longer had the things we cherish.

Regardless, of how educated one may be, or how wealthy, beautiful or popular, poor or plain, we all need God's grace. Below are some inspirational words of courage with hope and peace to add sun shine to your day:

Today's date:

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.  (11 Corinthians 1:3)

The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. (Psalm 34:7)

Romance Love and Its Effects on The Hearts

"Happiness is never found in materialistic things; it exists in things that cannot be physically possessed. Therefore, happiness is priceless. It can never be purchased."

Love is an exciting spiritual and uniting force that binds and connects two hearts and souls together as one, in a way that only the two individuals know they are meant to be together.

 Romantic novels, movies, and songs details the effects of love and stirs emotions that leaves the listeners and viewing audiences wanting more!

Readers of romance novels keep the writers busy.  Love looks beyond what the human eyes see, and far into the souls where it finds comfort, joy, happiness and peace, that words can't explain and neither can the mind comprehend in two people. It can cause individuals to leave their families miles away; crossing cities, states, and countries to be in each others arms and presence.

There are effects Romance Love has on the heart that can be harmful if it is not carefully assessed continually, by each individual. It means that each person has to carefully examine themselves to see if they are doing everything to improve on their relationship. The pitfalls come when one person takes on too much responsibility.

In Romance Love, there is no place for the role of a parent. Which means; never criticizing the other person; never talking down to the other person; allowing the other person to be their own individual; and to have some time alone.

 Honesty, is the strength in a good relationship. Lying, can tear a relationship apart.  Romance Love has to be nourished and pampered with the things that keeps the flames of fire burning in the hearts and souls of the two individuals. Romance Love can be as strong and as powerful  in our very own relationships as those we know of in novels, movies and songs.

Stand Up For Something!

"When you take a stand against injustice that has been inflicted upon 
innocent people, there will be those who will hate you for it."
__Ellen J. Barrier

The laws of justice are as strong as the characters of men and women who create them. And of those who enforce them.
When we stand up for something to defend it against injustice; there will be others who will resist us.
And there will be those who will want to keep things as they are that they have benefited from.  Regardless, of how it has hurt others, they see justice in it for themselves, and will fight to hold-on to it.

All of the great men and women that came before us, have paid a great price for standing up and speaking out against injustice treatment of innocent people, including Jesus Christ, the Son of God. If the people did it to these great men and women, they are certainly going to go after everyone who stands up against injustices.

Quotes from others:
 “You have enemies? Good, that means you stood up for something.” ― Eminem     

The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.
~ William James

As we continue on our journey within this path for peace with our neighbors regardless of their nationality, sexual agenda, economical status, religious beliefs, denomination, or whatever our difference of opinions with each other might be; God loves us all, and he will judge each of us by his standards, and not by the laws of man.

The End of Time

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth, lifted up his hand to heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven and the things therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, That there should be time no longer.

And the Seventh Angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a voice out of the Temple of Heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is Done."

Ellen J. Barrier

How We Pray Determines How God Will Answer.
When we pray to God, and thereby, petition him, it is not within our judgment to analyze how or when,  he should grant our request, or to use our knowledge, to interject our opinion on the subject matter, that we are petitioning him about, when we are praying. Neither should we listen to others who are giving their opinions.

We must stay steadfast in prayer and focus on the fact that, God is supernatural, and with him all things are possible.
Gabriel said, “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
St. Luke 1:37
In the case of Zacharias; he had been praying for a child. When God was prepared to grant his request, he used his knowledge to interject his opinion, which was irrelevant. And found out that this is a defiant act with God. And there is punishment that will follow.  Zacharias, didn’t believe that God was qualified to give him a child at the time God had chosen to do so.
Like most people, if the answer doesn’t come in the time they want it to, they give up. This is what Zacharias, had done. His mind wasn’t allowing him to look beyond the human’s educational process, and see the supernatural powers that God possesses.  Because he doubted God, he was punished. God took away his speech.  (St. Luke 1:21-25 & 57-64)
Scripture: James 1:67
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like the wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man (person) think that he shall receive anything of the Lord.

God's Sacrificial Offering to The World

In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.  Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
 Psalm 71: 1-3

                    Why Did God Choose Jesus for His Sacrificial Offering?

And   I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it; But I found none."
Ezekiel  22:29, 30

Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
Then said I, Lo, I come in (the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.
Hebrews 10:5,6,7

Prayer in Times of Distress

“When all hope is gone and your back is against the wall, ‘Pray.’
Ask God to guide you and he will take good care of you.”

― Ellen J. Barrier

And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers, and prayed unto him: and he was entreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD he was God. 11 Chronicles 33:12, 13


 Manasseh was the ruler of Jerusalem for fifty-five years. During his range he was described as one who caused the people to commit acts that were displeasing to God. Therefore, he and those who followed his leadership had been warned to correct their errors. And because of his disobedience, it was said “Wherefore the LORD brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him into Babylon.” 11 Chronicles 33:11

My Thoughts:

In times of afflictions, whether, they are health related, or a condition whereby one feels they are imprisoned, they seek help.  Manasseh, did as many others do, he turned to the God who his ancestors trusted for help. He received help from God, and became a better leader. He corrected many of his wrongdoings. And because of the changes he made in his leadership, the people made some positive changes as well. When leadership is strengthened and governed with righteous behavior, the people are better for it.

Dancing in the Rain During a Storm

The individuals who look for ways to avoid focusing on the storm, and the destruction it left behind, but rather on a greater future, can dance in the rain, during the storm.

Such individuals have learned to endure and persevere through the storms of hardships. They are those who possess happiness.

"Happiness is when the body, mind, and soul experience a sense of complete wholeness."
Happiness is never found in materialistic things; it exists in things that cannot be physically possessed. Therefore, happiness is priceless. It can never be purchased.

The Storms of Life

During the hardships of life that attacks unexpectedly, upon all human beings; There are those who believe in a spiritual force that is higher, who has all power and authority over every situation; in his wisdom, they place their trust.

Therefore, they are much stronger than the hardships they encounters. This allows them to search for new ideas, and to find new ways to improve their life. They don’t stop and wait for life to get better; they persevere in spite of the difficulties they face.

They keep working despite the hardships; to find ways to make their life better, during the attacks they encountered. They set a goal before them for each attack they encountered.  Due to the way they chose to deal with the hardships they encounters, their goals are victorious ones.

*Because they never stop to focus on the negative, but rather the positive, they are able to enjoy life.

Regardless of the attack, which may be upon one’s health, finances, personal life, or whatever the hardship maybe, that is as challenging as any storm that leaves destruction within its path, the individual who look for ways to avoid focusing on the storm, and the destruction it left behind, but rather the future, can dance in the rain, during a storm.

Heaven’s Grocery Store

Ellen J. Barrier

I was walking down life's highway a long time ago.
One day I saw a sign that read HEAVEN'S GROCERY STORE.
As I got a little closer, the door open wide, and when I came to myself, I was standing inside.
 I saw a host of ANGELS; they were standing everywhere. And one ANGEL said, “MY CHILD SHOP WITH CARE.”  Everything a CHRISTIAN needed was in that grocery store.  And all you couldn’t carry, you could come back the next day for more.
First, I got some PATIENCE.  LOVE was in the same row.  Further down was UNDERSTANDING. You need that everywhere you go.
 I got a box or two of WISDOM, a bag or two of FAITH. I just couldn’t miss the HOLY GHOST for it was all over the place.
 I stopped to get some STRENGTH and COURAGE to help me run the race. By then, my basket was getting full, but I remembered I need some GRACE.
I didn’t forget SALVATION. For SALVATION that was free.
 So, I tried to get enough of that save you and me.
Then I started to the counter to pay my grocery bill. For I thought I had everything to do MY MASTER’s WILL. As I went up the aisle, I saw PRAYER and just had to put that in.  For I knew when I stepped outside, I would run right into sin.
PEACE and JOY were PLENTIFUL.  They were on the last shelf. SONG and PRAISES were hanging near so I just helped myself.

Psalm 121

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepth thee will not

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth,
and even for evermore.

When we visit the hills and look up into the sky, we feel a sense of peace and hope. The universe inspires faith to believe there is a creator of all life in heaven and upon earth. There is a special feeling that we get when we get out into the atmosphere such as spending time at the parks, picnics, and becoming one with nature. Having a garden and watching plants grow is rewarding in several ways. The exercise and health for our bodies are all positive things we get from gardening.

There are so many wonderful things we receive from earth, the beauty is breath taking and awesome to watch, day or night. And they are uplifting and inspirational, therefore, they gives us hope to pray to God in our time of needs.

How to Determine a True Friend


             Ellen J. Barrier

Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.  ~ Aristotle

Make no friend with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: lest thou learn his ways, and get snare to their soul.  Proverbs 22:24, 25 (K.J.V.)

(1)    something by which one is entangled, involved in difficulties, or impeded (2) : something deceptively attractive.
Definition Source: Wikipedia encyclopedia


King Solomon explains very clearly the characteristics of true friendship by stating, “A man that hath friends must show himself friendly; and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”
Proverbs 18:24

A true friend is not someone who is going to leave you when you are in desperate need.  They will always be with you when family members aren’t there for you. They are always ready to listen, when you need to express your innermost feelings.  You can depend on them to keep your personal information secured. They will protect you.  A true friend loves unconditionally. They never expect anything in return for the things they do  A true friend is very rare. When one is found, they are held close within our soul, because they and we are one.  Their love is not romantic, they aren't necessarily of the same gender, and aren’t always of the same ethnicity.  A true friend is sometime of different ages. There is a respect for each other that can never be blemished. And an everlasting bond that is never broken.

Condemned for Showing the World’s Shame

Ellen J. Barrier

“The books that the world calls immoral are the books that show the world its own shame.”

For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.
Titus 2:11

My Thoughts:

The same people who condemn books that show the world its own shame, also, condemn lyrics, movies, music, and songs, for showing the world its own shame.

The Bible contains many books that show the world its own shame.  But when we articulate those things, and reveal them in books, lyrics, movies, music, and songs,  the Holier than Thou crowd, comes after us, condemning and  sitting in the seat of judgment, claiming their religious rights are being infringed upon.  Some individuals believe they are doing God’s work, by going after the authors, artists, and performers work,  and labeling it “immoral” trying to hinder the progress.

Showing the world its own shame through books, lyrics, movies, music, and songs are methods of teachings that can be for the good of the world. People are given the opportunity to make some changes in their lives for the good that will make the world less shameful. Through the technology of today, we are able to make biblical teachings more effective, when we view things from an educational standpoint of view, rather than viewing them by using our personal religious beliefs, that causes arguments and disagreements.

Music is the universal language of mankind.  ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Outre-Mer)

I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to Hell with them that descend into the pit:
They also went down into Hell with him unto them that be slain with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt under his shadow in the midst of the heathen. Ezekiel 31:16, 17 (K.J.V.)

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;  Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry,
witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, drunkenness, revellings, and such like. They which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-22 (K.J.V)

The Power of Music over the Mind

        Ellen J. Barrier
Musician/Recording Artist/Songwriter

“Music is a safe kind of high.” __Jimi Hendrix

There is a power in music that can connect with the listener, in a way that no other source can. Music has power over the mind.

Artists are able to stir emotions with their music, through the state of mood feelings:  There are many genres of music to choose from. Each piece of art has its own mood.  In the quote below from the bible, this artist mood is sad. In the next quote, the effect of the artist, with this listener, is that high mood, Mr. Hendrix was referring to.  Music is like a medicine. We are addicted to music, because we need it. It can bring relief to the aches and stressful situations that life brings. We live in a world of music. There is sound and rhythm everywhere we go!

The Sad Mood:
 “My harp also is turned to mourning, and my organ into the voice of them that weep.” Job 30:31

The High Mood:
“When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest. __Henry David Thoreau

Why Should I Pray?


Ellen J. Barrier

Prayer is like a therapy, we get the opportunity to empty our entire being to our creator. At the same time we have confidence that he can resolve our problems. Prayer gives us courage, hope and strength. It also, helps us to have patience. It allows us to be aware of other people's feelings. Through prayer we become better individuals. The overall results of prayer and reading inspirational material, such as the bible, poems, and meditation, bring about peace that creates joy and happiness within us. We are able to view life situations and the future clearer. Therefore, our health is improved, because our mind isn't overloaded with stress.

The purpose of Prayer
Scripture: (1 Peter 5:7)
Casting all your care upon him: for he careth for you.

Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more._ Anthony Robbins

Your Chosen Place, Rest or No Rest


Sandra Chapman

 A mysterious awareness is blowing in the wind,
It's exceedingly closer now than it's ever been,
Nature seems to comprehend the interpretation there within,
Something exciting and wonderful is just around the bin,
God's words of wisdom being proclaimed throughout the land,
Will the world stop and listen to God's truth being told to man,
From the beginning unto the end unfolding His amazing plan,
Genuine salvation, without measure He showed His love toward men,
We've allowed ourselves to think we don't need the Lord until when,
Ignoring the truth we settle for myths saying God doesn't exist,
This doesn't change the facts from the beginning God isn't amiss,
We've made ourselves become gods, we don't need him anymore,
What excused will the world give while kneeling before The Lord,
The Lamb's Book of Life then will be opened all names written therein,
Judgement to all great and small will your name be found there?

Your very words will condemn you, there's no turning back then,
What cries will be heard from men when being judged by Him,
It’s your choices were unwise without foresight to what was ahead,
Without sudden notice angels appear, swooping down with dread,
In the distance a new horizon something glowing in the dark,
The lake of fire indescribable awaits those who took the mark,
Kicking, screaming crying aloud facing unbelievable horrifying fear,

Anguish mourning's of people abandoned all hope who enter here,
You've determined your fate by decisions you made sometime ago,
Without hesitation the angels lets go dropping you in the fire below,
Eternal agony beyond comprehension forever without no ending,
The fearful, unbelieving, idolaters and all liars eternity descending,
The Righteous Judge's last invitation from the book of Revelation,
Spirit of bride say, Come, he that hears, Come, whosoever will come,
Your decision to make choose wisely before all happens above,
Unfortunately some will ignore God's warnings, woes, and his love,
Accountability we much face, consequences for consideration,
Tribulation, fire and brimstone, damnation your future accommodations,
You could have been forever blessed but you've chose this place of no rest,

The Just and Righteous Judge

Ellen J. Barrier


The Just & Righteous Judge (King James Bible; Psalm 82)
God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.
How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness;
all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
Arise O God, judge the earth:
for thou shall inherit all nations.

My Thoughts:
Those who sit in power, and use their skills to deceive, manipulate, and cause harm to others, will be judged by God, the one and only powerful source who has the authority over all nations and people to render his judgment upon those who have wrongfully treated innocent people; while they profited and glorified themselves in riches and wealth, and powerful positions through greed and pride, having no conscious of the evil acts they committed.

There are people who are homeless, hungry, falsely imprisoned, finances destroyed, because of wickedness that lies in places where justice should have been upheld. And there are others whose characters have been assassinated by lies. Innocent people have been killed because of hate. There are some cases that have been tried in our court system, that have allowed guilty people to go free. And there have been innocent people who have been found guilty by the same court system and imprisoned.

The leaders who sit in the temples of worship, committing sin and condemning others, have no shame and no conscious of the evilness they have committed against those who they should have held a high moral standard of spiritual leadership to follow; have caused many to turn away from religion, and those who follow their leadership to sin against God, and his people, while they continue to enjoy their luxurious life styles and high positions.

Spiritual leadership, is the head of our nations. When it is corrupt, the other leadership positions are deeply affected; this weakness that is at the top, enters into other leadership positions and become rooted and spreads throughout the justice systems and into every system and branch in society, corrupting the minds of our young and older people causing them to commit wrongful acts without a conscious.

Always Loving and Missing You

Sandra Chapman


Our first date was Feb. 5, 1989, Sunday,
Meeting you was like meeting a best friend for life,
We talked for hours on end enjoying each others company,
Your persistent personality won me over with laughter,
Only after two weeks of dating I fall in love with you,
You made it impossible not to love you with all my heart.

On this day Aug. 19, 1989 we were married,
Starting a life together meant a lifetime of love that was to last,
For twenty-one years, four months and four days of happiness,
My life with you was an honor, joy, and a blessing beyond compare,
People ask, "When is the honeymoon over between you two?"
Your replied, "Why should it ever end? I'm having too much fun."

Our love for each other was imperishable to the end of your life,
Our love will continue through to life everlasting with The Lord,
Above all miracles knowing we'll be together throughout eternity,
Not as husband and wife, but as brother and sister in Heaven,
For we are not given in marriage as we know it to be on earth,
Living eternity with The Lord is all we'll ever need.

For now I'm left here to carry on without you by my side,
It's hard to except this reality as the days continue on,
There are days when I cry uncontrollable because I miss you so,
The thought of not see you each day makes me feel weak-hearted,
The daytime hours aren't so bad but the nights are wearisome,
Adapting to grief with God's help has given me courage to go on.

The last time we spoke to each other was on courage to go on,
Not really understanding why at the time what was to be,
The dream I had didn't make sense to me until you were gone,
I’ll always remember your loving smile and those big blue eyes,
Your love for me show each day for twenty-one years plus,
Always loving and missing you to the end of time and eternity.

Valley experiences are often needed to survive at mountain top levels! If you ever reached the mountain top it's hard to survive in the valley! So often we give up in the valley when we're use to the mountain. Just remember on your way back up to the top what you did to get knocked down! LessonLearned4me

Religious Bullying


Ellen J. Barrier

Religious Bullying
The religious bully is one who is self-righteous. He or she feels morally superior above others. This is an individual who doesn’t feel guilt when having committed a sinful act. They sit in the seat of judgment against others according to their religious beliefs. They use certain biblical words to defend their position based on the way they believe things should be, that are contrary to common sense.
The religious bully is a danger to him or her own selves, and to others, because they place themselves in a position that they feel is godlike, and therefore, they are disconnected to God.
When the religious bullies start toting bibles and placing themselves in leadership positions, they become a powerful and evil force against society that is very dangerous, because out of their organizations hatemongers are reproduced. They don’t like anyone who disagrees with their philosophy.
The hatemongers desire is to destroy, and to harm those who they feel is unclean, or unworthy to exist.
The danger to these particular individuals and to others; they’re tuned in to a spirit that they believe is God, who is speaking to them and telling them the right things to do. Whatever they hear, they believe and there is no one who can convince their leader nor their followers that they are wrong..
What the Bible Says:
For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.
Romans 10:2-4
Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Matthew 7:21-23
But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment:  Matthew 5:22                             

Having the Strength of Eagles


They that wait on the Lord shall renew their Strength: They shall mount up with wings as eagles;
Isaiah 40:31

But do thou for me, O God the Lord, for thy name’s sake: because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me. For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.  Psalm 109:21,22

In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.  Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
Psalm 71: 1-3

Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength. Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.

He delivereth and rescueth,  and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions. Daniel 6:27 

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. Psalm 91: 11

Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them. They cried unto thee and were delivered: They trusted in thee, and were not confounded. 
Psalm 22: 4,5 

He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:29,30,31

The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

I WAITED  patiently for the LORD;  and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.  Psalm 40:1

Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continue in prayer;

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
With long life will I satisfy him and shew him my salvation.
