Daily Prayer: Day 234

From Simple Prayers, Day 234

I DRAW NEAR TO YOU, GOD

I praise You, Lord, that You are intimately acquainted with my ways and that You always love me and have my best interests at heart.

By Your grace, I want to observe Your judgments and keep Your statutes, to walk in them; You are the Lord my God. May I keep Your statutes and Your judgments, by which a man may live if he does them; You are the Lord. (Leviticus 18:4–5)

May I fear the Lord and serve and obey Him and not rebel against the command of the Lord. (1 Samuel 12:14)

Take a moment to offer this day to the Lord and ask Him for the grace to grow in your knowledge and love for Him.

THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE

The Lord my God is the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commands. (Deuteronomy 7:9)

The Lord said to Abraham, “By Myself I have sworn, that because you have not withheld your son, your only son, I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” (Genesis 22:16–18)

I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH

In You, O Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be ashamed; deliver me in Your righteousness. Since You are my rock and my fortress, for Your name’s sake lead me and guide me. Into Your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O Lord, God of truth. (Psalm 31:1, 3, 5)

MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD

Like Job, I want to be blameless and upright, fearing God and shunning evil. (Job 1:1)

I will lay up Your words in my heart and in my soul and teach them to my children, talking about them when I sit in my house and when I walk along the way and when I lie down and when I rise up. (Deuteronomy 11:18–19)

Lord, I thank You for the covenant You made with Abraham and for the widespread blessings it has produced. I thank You for leading and guiding me, and I ask that I would lay up Your words in my heart and teach them to others.
