Here is today’s prayer from Psalm 119-7 (Zayin, “tool”), verses 49-56:
God. Abba. Father.
Thank you for your word. Like a trowel, may you plant your word deep in our hearts. Thank you for your promises of truth and life. We cling to your word every day for it brings us hope. Your promises keep us steady when the storms prevail. Yes, we are energized by your word!
Others may turn their backs to you, but we will press on. Others may mock our devotion to you, but our adventures with you affirm your love for us. Your precepts keep us on the right track. Your unending compassion guides us and keeps us safe.
We sing of your faithfulness day and night. For you are good to us. We are comforted by the peace of your word.
Jesus in the Word.
And it is in His name we pray.
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.
