weekly prayer 03.05.18

Psa 46:10-11 ESV – “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”  The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
 
Psa 131:1-3 ESV – O LORD, my heart is not lifted up; my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me.  But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.  O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and forevermore.
 
Almighty, Sovereign God,
 
Today I am so comforted and relieved that YOU ARE GOD. I do not have that job. I am so completely unqualified and ill-equipped. Forgive me, Lord, when I try to take on Your job. My task is to calm and quiet my soul in submission to Your will. Not to tell You what to do or rage and strain against the reins because I am not getting my way. That is not trust in You. That is “being wise in my own eyes” (Proverbs 3) and it just plain does not work . . .
 
God, I want You to be exalted among the nations. I want You to be exalted in the earth. I want those who have not heard of You to hear. I pray that You would open hearts to repent and believe the gospel. I pray that You would grant repentance to my loved ones who are captured by satan to do his will.
 
Father, I trust Your plan for me. I don’t need to know every detail. Help me to be a good listener, and then to obey You immediately, with no striving, no argument. You are God. You are my Master. 
You love me. I love You,
amen

Weekly Prayer 02.26.18

Psalm 63:1-8 ESV
1 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. 
2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. 
3 Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. 
4 So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. 
5 My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, 
6 when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night; 
7 for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy. 
8 My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me. 
 
O Mighty God,
You are my God — what an amazing declaration! You have adopted me as Your child. You rescued me. You love me. 
You are my Protector and my Help. You have been in the past, and You are now. You will be the same tomorrow and tomorrow. Thank You for giving me these memories of Your care and power in the past. I trust Your plans for me now. 
Lord, You are enough. You are God. I love You,
amen
