It is the morning.

A new day has dawned, and in these moments I find the Source of Life did not leave my heart through the night.

If a cadence can be discerned in our days, it is this.

That each moment is a window into our past and future; that each breath and beat of the heart is an indicator that we are not alone.

We are so much less than alone.

We are truly surrounded.

Surrounded by God. Surrounded by love. Surrounded by strong ones, seen and unseen, who watch and guard.



Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
