Prayer to Yahweh-Shammah

The Lord Is There

The Lord who is present. He never leaves you, nor forsakes you. He is with you forever. First found in Ezekiel 48:35. “The circumference of the city shall be 18,000 cubits. And the name of city from that time on shall be “The Lord Is There.”

(Adapted from Psalm 139:7-12)

O Yahweh-Shammah, where can I go from You?

You are in the deepest ocean and on top of the highest mountain.

You are in the winds of a tornado and the calm after the storm has passed.

When storms of life surround me, You are with me, You never forget where I am.

When the people leave me, You never leave me.

Where can I go where you can’t find me.?

O Yahweh-Shammah, where can I go from You?

You are with me when I travel, near and far.

You are with me when I am at home, comfortable and secure.

When I fly high into the sky, You are there.

When I dive deep into caves and bodies of water, You are there.

Where can I go without You?

O Yahweh-Shammah, where can I go from You?

When the night is dark and scary, You are with me.

When it is bitter cold and spring seems far away, You are with me.

You are with me in the desert as well as in the gardens and oasis.

You are the Light which shines bright and clear.

Where can I go where You don’t shine brightly?

O Yahweh-Shammah, thank you for never leaving me.

When I yell and scream at You, You don’t leave me.

When I forget to thank You, You forgive me.

When I cry out in terror, You hold me in Your hand.

When my family is hurting, You comfort us.

O Yahweh-Shammah, thank you
