Psalm 119-13, Mem (“water”)

Here is today’s prayer from Psalm 119-13, Mem, Water or People, verses 97-104:

God. Abba. Father.

Day after day we come back to a love for your word, the Bible. There is great depth to your word. Just as we cannot see all the fish and plants that are below the ocean’s surface, there are valuable lessons for life as we dig deep into the word. Give us a hunger for your word. May your teachings always be on our hearts and in our minds. Thank you for teaching us new insights, even through familiar and ancient stories. Your word is fresh and gives us understanding and wisdom for the issues we are wrestling with today.

You are our teacher, Lord. We will not reject your ways, for they lead to life. Yes, the word is sweeter than honey. We love to read, and meditate, and consume your decrees. They are relevant. They hold the keys to unlocking our greatest questions and the daily living out of our lives. Thank you for this great instruction book, your word.

Your word is life. The Word is Jesus.

In His name we pray.

Amen.

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.
