Here is today’s prayer from Psalm 119-8 (Chet, “wall”), verses 57-64:
God. Abba. Father.
Thank you for walls, Lord. Ones that surround us and protect us and keep the enemy from getting to us or prevent us from places we need not go. You are good to us in that way. Thank you!
Our hearts’ desire is to obey your word – every minute of every day. Forgive us when we put our desires ahead of your plans. Sometimes we get distracted and knocked off the path. Sometimes those distractors surround us. Yet, you give us the strength to stand, to break down walls that are meant to harm us, and follow you once again. Thank you for heaven-gifted breakthroughs!
The earth is filled with your love! Thank you for friends who love you. Give us allies who will encourage us and speak your truths to us. And allow us to be the same for our companions. Teach us how to follow your ways.
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.
