From Simple Prayers, Day 342
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.
Behold, He who forms the mountains and creates the wind,
And reveals His thoughts to man,
He who turns dawn to darkness,
And treads the high places of the earth—
The Lord God of hosts is His name. (Amos 4:13)
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
Before You formed me in the womb, You knew me; before I was born, You set me apart. (Jeremiah 1:5)
Because Jesus lives forever, He has a permanent priesthood. Therefore He is also able to save completely those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to intercede for them. (Hebrews 7:24–25)
I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH
Like Josiah, I want to do what is right in the sight of the Lord and walk in all the ways of David, not turning aside to the right or to the left. (2 Kings 22:1–2)
MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD
A prudent man sees evil and hides himself, but the simple keep going and suffer for it. (Proverbs 22:3; 27:12)
A fool has no delight in understanding, but only in airing his own opinions. (Proverbs 18:2)
Lord, I thank You that You knew me before I was born and that You are able to save completely those who come to You through Jesus Christ. I pray that I would do what is right in Your sight, and I ask that I would be prudent enough to avoid evil and to gain understanding.
