Bible: Habakkuk 3:17-19

3:17 When 1  the fig tree does not bud,

and there are no grapes on the vines;

when the olive trees do not produce, 2 

and the fields yield no crops; 3 

when the sheep disappear 4  from the pen,

and there are no cattle in the stalls,

3:18 I will rejoice because of 5  the Lord;

I will be happy because of the God who delivers me!

3:19 The sovereign Lord is my source of strength. 6 

He gives me the agility of a deer; 7 

he enables me to negotiate the rugged terrain. 8 

(This prayer is for the song leader. It is to be accompanied by stringed instruments.) 9
