The Psalms is a book of prayers. It covers a wide range of human emotions and can be a catalyst for when you don’t know what to say to God! Join me as I pray through the Psalms.
A prayer inspired by Psalm 1:
Lord, please focus my thoughts. Direct my steps towards the ways that please you. Please provide friendships for me that will bear good fruit and draw me nearer to you. Help me to be open to those friendships. Help me, Lord, to not dwell on negative things. This can be such a struggle, some days!
Write your words on my heart, Lord. Fill my head with your thoughts. Please help the Bible to be meaningful to me; give me understanding and insight.
Help me, Lord, to thrive – could you be my water? Help me to be healthy in every way: mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually. Help me to do good work that will be effective in the right ways.
I know that your ways are best. May I not get sidetracked by the things of this world: selfish ambition, wealth – the things that pass away.
Have mercy on me, Lord. I know that your eyes are always on me, and I thank you for that.
