Praying the Scriptures – 5/30/07 #2

30 May

Nu 23:19; 1 Sa 15:29; Ps 145:4-6; Mi 7:18-19; Ps 40:2-3; Jn 8:32, 34-36; Pr 3:3; 1 Co 13:4-8; De 15:10; Pr 3:27

O God, You are not a man that You would lie, nor the son of man, that you should repent. What You have said, You will do. You will make good what You have spoken. You are the Strength and Glory of Israel, who will not lie nor repent. To lie would be to go against Your very nature, and that You cannot do. You have nothing to repent of.

Lord, I will commend Your works to the next generation, and will declare Your mighty acts. I will meditate on Your wondrous works and the glorious majesty of Your honor. Of the might of Your awesome acts I will speak, and I will declare Your greatness.

There is no God like You, who pardons iniquity, and passes over the disobedience of the remnant of Your heritage. Help me to be like You, Father, who doesn’t retain anger forever, because You delight in lovingkindness. As You have compassion on me, help me to have compassion on others. Please tread my iniquities under foot and cast all my sins into the depths of the sea.

God, thank you for bringing me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay. You set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. O Father, You have put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to my God. Many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in You.

Thank You for the Truth, Father. I know the Truth, and the Truth has indeed made me free. I don’t want to be a bondservant of sin, Father. I want to remain in Your house forever, as Your child. Lord Jesus, You have set me free, Thank You for making me free indeed.

I will not let love or truth leave me. I will bind them around my neck and write them on the tablet of my heart.

God, You have given me Your love, a love that is patient, kind, doesn’t envy or brag. It is not proud and does not behave inappropriately. Your love does not seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil, doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. Your love never fails, Father. Everything else will be done away with, but Your love prevails. Help me, O God, to show Your kind of love to others.

I want to have a generous heart, like Yours, Father. Help me to cheerfully give to others. Help me to not withhold good from those to whom it is due when it is in my power to do the good.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
