From Simple Prayers, Day 119
I DRAW NEAR TO YOU, GOD
O Lord, I am deeply grateful for Your wonderful acts, for Your abundant promises, and for the gift of my relationship with You through the merits of Christ.
I will give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name,
And make known to others what He has done.
I will sing to Him, sing praises to Him,
And tell of all His wonderful acts. (1 Chronicles 16:8–9)
I know that the Lord has set apart the godly for Himself;
The Lord hears when I call to Him. (Psalm 4:3)
Take a moment to express your gratitude for the many blessings that you have received from the Lord.
THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; lovingkindness and truth go before You. (Psalm 89:14)
The Lord is our praise, and He is our God, who performed for the children of Israel those great and awesome wonders which they saw with their own eyes. (Deuteronomy 10:21)
I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves Him who is begotten of Him. Whatever is born of God overcomes the world, and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? (1 John 5:1, 4–5)
MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD
I will not boast about tomorrow, for I do not know what a day may bring forth. (Proverbs 27:1)
Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the strong man boast of his strength, and let not the rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, who exercises lovingkindness, justice, and righteousness on earth; for in these I delight,” declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 9:23–24)
Lord, I thank You for Your loyal love and truth and for Your great and awesome wonders. I thank You that I have been born of God through faith in Christ Jesus, and I ask that I would boast only of You.
