Here is today’s prayer from Psalm 119-9 (Tet, “basket”), verses 65-72:
God. Abba. Father.
Our hearts overflow with gratitude! We open our hands and our minds and seek your wisdom. Teach us your ways, oh great King. Be kind and gracious to us. We trust your word.
Today we thank you for discipline. When we go off the path that you have chosen for us, you guide us back with your faithful love and grace. You are good and what you do is good. Even when those who do not follow your ways speak untruths, we will warmly embrace your word. We will not follow them, but we will follow you. Your law and your grace are our delight!
When we find ourselves in trouble, we know that you will cause all things to work together for our good. Because we love you and you love us. We are your children. You are our Father. Your words are more valuable to us than wealth or great riches.
Your Word is Jesus. Your Word is our life!
Through Jesus we thank you.
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.
