From Handbook to Prayer
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
The world and all who dwell in it.
For He founded it upon the seas
And established it upon the waters. (Psalm 24:1–2)
God sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a curtain
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
He reduces rulers to nothing
And makes the judges of this world meaningless. (Isaiah 40:22–23)
Pause to express your thoughts of praise and worship.
The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold,
But the Lord tests the hearts. (Proverbs 17:3)
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.
