Daily Prayer Day 55

I DRAW NEAR TO YOU, GOD

God, I want Your Word to be deeply implanted in me so that I not only know the truth, but also express it in the way I live.

Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord,
Who walks in His ways.  (Psalm 128:1)

The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him,
Who put their hope in His unfailing love.  (Psalm 147:11)

Take a moment to affirm the truth of these words from Scripture and ask God to make them a growing reality in your life.

THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE

Your word is settled in heaven forever, O Lord.  Your faithfulness continues through all generations; You established the earth, and it stands.  They continue to this day according to Your ordinances, for all things serve You.  (Psalm 119:89-91)

One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts.  I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty and on Your wonderful works.  Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome works, and I will proclaim Your great deeds.  (Psalm 145:4-6)

I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH

Why are you downcast, O my soul?  Why are you disturbed within me?  Hope in God, for I will yet praise Him for the help of His presence.  O my God, my soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember You.  Why are you downcast, O my soul?  Why are you disturbed within me?  Hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God.  (Psalm 42:5-6, 11)

MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD

I will not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own.  (Matthew 6:34)

I do not want to lay up treasure for myself without being rich toward God.  (Luke 12:21) 


Lord, I thank You that all things serve You and that You and Your works are wonderful.  I thank You that I can find comfort through hope in You, and I ask that I do not worry about worldly things, but seek to be rich toward You.
