Daily Prayer Day 37

I DRAW NEAR TO YOU, GOD

I am grateful to You, O God, for the blessing of your forgiveness.  I thank You that in Christ, You set me free from the guilt of the past and give me hope for the future.

I return to the Lord my God,
For I have stumbled because of my iniquity. 
I take words with me and return to the Lord,
Saying, "Take away all iniquity and receive me graciously,
That I may offer the fruit of my lips."  (Hosea 14:1-2)

Take a moment to ask the Spirit to search your heart and reveal any areas of unconfessed sin.  Acknowledge these to the Lord and thank Him for His forgiveness.

THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE

To whom can I liken You or count You equal?  To whom can I compare You that You may be alike?  (Isaiah 46:5)

John saw heaven opened, and there before him was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True; and in righteousness He judges and makes war.  His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on His head are many crowns.  He has a name written on Him that no one knows except Himself.  He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and His name is the Word of God.  And the armies of heaven, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him.  And out of His mouth goes a sharp sword with which He will strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron.  He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.  And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.  (Revelation 19:11-16)

I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH

Lord Jesus, You have said that unless I am converted and become like a little child, I will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore, whoever humbles himself like a child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  (Matthew 18:3-4)

MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD

Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.  (Proverbs 12:18)

We should let the word of Christ dwell in us richly as we teach and admonish one another with all wisdom and as we sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in our hearts to God.  (Colossians 3:16)


Lord, I thank You that You are incomparable and that Your Son will come as the KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.  I thank You for calling me to become like a little child, and I ask that my words would build others up and not tear them down.
