From Handbook to Prayer
You, the Lord, alone have declared
What is to come from the distant past.
There is no God apart from You,
A righteous God and a Savior;
There is none besides You.
You are God, and there is no other.
You are my hope, O Lord God;
You are my trust from my youth.
As for me, I will always have hope;
I will praise You more and more.
(Psalm 71:5, 14)
Pause to express your thoughts of praise and worship.
You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness;
Evil cannot dwell with You.
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.
