Daily Prayer: Year 1, Day 6

From A Simple Book of Prayers

Guarding My Heart

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.

I will both lie down in peace and sleep;
For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4:8)

I have set the Lord always before me;
Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices;
My body also will rest in hope.
You will make known to me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand are pleasures forever. (Psalm 16:8–9, 11)

Take a moment to affirm the truth of these words from Scripture, and ask God to make them a growing reality in your life.

I will guard my heart with all diligence, for out of it flow the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23)

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. (Proverbs 9:10)

Lord, I praise You for Your surpassing loftiness and for Your dominion over the cosmos. I thank You for loving me in Christ Jesus. May I guard my heart and know You better.
