From Simple Prayers, Day 233
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.
There is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good
And never sins. (Ecclesiastes 7:20)
Who among us fears the Lord
And obeys the word of His Servant?
Let him who walks in darkness and has no light
Trust in the name of the Lord and rely upon his God. (Isaiah 50:10)
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
You are the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. (Exodus 3:6)
The Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am El Shaddai; walk before Me and be blameless. And I will confirm My covenant between Me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.” Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying, “As for Me, My covenant is with you, and you will be the father of many nations. No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful; I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you. And I will establish My covenant as an everlasting covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.” (Genesis 17:1–7)
I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH
Who is the man that fears the Lord? He will instruct him in the way he should choose. (Psalm 25:12)
MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD
The God of Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me: “He who rules over men in righteousness, who rules in the fear of God, is like the light of morning when the sun rises, a morning without clouds, like the tender grass springing out of the earth through the sunshine after rain.” (2 Samuel 23:3–4)
I will learn to fear You all the days I live on the earth and teach Your words to my children. (Deuteronomy 4:10)
Lord, I thank You for calling Abraham and his descendants to walk before You and for the covenant promises You made. I pray that You would instruct me in the way I should go, and I ask that I would learn to fear You and teach Your words to others.
