From Handbook to Prayer
Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,
Or marked off the heavens with the breadth of His hand?
Who has calculated the dust of the earth in a measure,
Or weighed the mountains in the balance
And the hills in scales? (Isaiah 40:12)
You are the Lord, and there is no other;
Apart from You there is no God.
From the rising to the setting of the sun,
We know there is none besides You.
You are the Lord, and there is no other. (Isaiah 45:5–6)
Pause to express your thoughts of praise and worship.
When my soul was fainting away,
I remembered the Lord,
And my prayer went up to You, to Your holy temple.
Those who cling to worthless idols
Forsake Your lovingkindness.
But I will sacrifice to You
With the voice of thanksgiving.
I will fulfill what I have vowed.
Salvation is from the Lord. (Jonah 2:7–9)
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.
