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.
Here is today’s prayer, preceded by the text from the Contemporary English Version, copyright 1995, by the America Bible Society.
Our Lord, you are King! Majesty and power are your royal robes. You put the world in place, and it will never be moved. You have always ruled, and you are eternal.
The ocean is roaring, Lord! The sea is pounding hard. Its mighty waves are majestic, but you are more majestic, and you rule over all. Your decisions are firm, and your temple will always be beautiful and holy
Here is today’s prayer from Psalm 93
God. Abba. Father.
You are our great King. You are crowned with a crown that includes the world and all that is in. Your robes flow from north to south. You are the master, the creator. You are strength. You put the world in its place. It will never be shaken.
Because of your great love for us, for your children, we too will never be shaken. Even though the mighty oceans roar. Even though the tempest of the seas stirs. Even when we face our own storms, you speak the words “Peace. Be still.” and they listen. Yes, even our personal turmoil, when the waves of our circumstances crash down around us, your calm is at hand because the storms obey your words.
We praise you because you are our perfect peace. You are holy. Now into eternity, which has no end.
By the word of Jesus,
