We’re reading through, and with intentionality, praying through the Psalms during this school year. There are 150 Psalms, divided into 180 different readings. See this post for more info.
The audio file below is the entire episode for today. The text below is today’s prayer. I’m reading the Contemporary English Version of the Text, copyright 1995, by the American Bible Society.
God. Abba. Father.
We honor you today. We offer only praise. We humbly ask you to forgive us when we are arrogant or talk in ways that are not honoring to you. We stand before you today and reject those things that are wrong. We turn to you.
Your love is faithful. It reaches far as we can see. Your decisions are just and fair. They are as vast as the highest mountain peak or deepest depth of the sea. Your love is a treasure. It is priceless. We run to you to find shelter. You give us a feast to enjoy in your house when we are famished. We drink from unending rivers of living water when we are parched and thirsty. You open our eyes to see your brilliance in glorious light.
Lord, please keep on loving us. And use us to welcome new hearts into your Kingdom. Protect us from those who are prideful and independent. They will fall in their selfish ways.
We open our hands and our hearts to you, Jesus. Always. Amen.
