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 praise you for you are the One True God. Your name is Emmanuel. You are always close to us. Thank you!
You are also the ultimate Judge. You will choose an appointed time to bring balance to your righteous scales. Right now the earth seems too lopsided. The evil appears great. But when we look closely, we also see your people and your peace and your love and your grace in many, many places. We thank you for the increase of your goodness across the earth.
We know that in you alone is our victory. You give power. You take away power. You give life. You take away life. We trust your ways. They are holy and pure. And we will sing your praises as long as we live. You will ultimately destroy those who are evil. And you give strength to those who open their hands to receive your grace.
Grace that has been given to us through your Son Jesus. So we open our hands to receive His grace today. And it is in His name we pray.
