From Simple Prayers, Day 64
I DRAW NEAR TO YOU, GOD
Lord, I give thanks for Your greatness, your goodness, and your love, and I now draw near to enjoy your presence.
How great You are, O Sovereign Lord! There is no one like You, and there is no God besides You, according to all that I have heard with my ears. (2 Samuel 7:22; 1 Chronicles 17:20)
You alone are the Lord.
You made the heavens,
The heaven of heavens, and all their host,
The earth and all that is on it,
The seas and all that is in them.
You give life to all that is in them,
And the host of heaven worships You. (Nehemiah 9:6)
Take a moment to consider God’s awesome majesty and thank Him that He loves you and wants an intimate relationship with you.
THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE
Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for everything in heaven and earth is Yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom, and You are exalted as head over all. Both riches and honor come from You, and You are the ruler of all things. In Your hand is power and might to exalt and to give strength to all. Therefore, my God, I give You thanks and praise Your glorious name. All things come from You, and I can only give You what comes from Your hand. (1 Chronicles 29:11–14)
With the kind You show Yourself kind; with the blameless You show Yourself blameless; with the pure You show Yourself pure; but to the crooked You show Yourself shrewd. You save the humble, but Your eyes are on the haughty to bring them low. (2 Samuel 22:26–28)
I LISTEN TO YOUR WORDS OF TRUTH
How great is Your goodness, which You have stored up for those who fear You, which You have prepared for those who take refuge in You before the sons of men! (Psalm 31:19)
MY RESPONSE TO YOU, LORD
I will not repay evil for evil to anyone, but I will pursue what is good for others. (1 Thessalonians 5:15)
I will treat subordinates with respect, not threatening them, knowing that both their Master and mine is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him. (Ephesians 6:9)
Lord, I thank You that You are the ruler of all things and that You save the humble. I thank You for Your goodness, and I ask that I would pursue what is in the best interests of others.
