Reading: Psalm 125:2
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
    so the Lord surrounds his people
    both now and forevermore.

Thought for Reflection:
Someone who loves you, will wrap their arms around you to show you love and protection. God is doing this for us, the Lord provides a shelter, not only in times of trouble, but in times of joy. We have all seen celebration hugs.

Prayer:
Lord to wrap your arms round us, you have to stretch all the way across the cross. Thank you.
