A Prayer from God’s Word

Recently God has been challenging me to pray Scripture, especially in regard to my wondering heart and my need for His constant cleansing. Three verses really struck me as powerful prayers and I have been talking them over with God. One is the much quoted verse from Psalm 139, “Search me O, God, and know my heart.” Another is “Create in me a clean heart.” from David’s prayer in Psalm 50 and the last one is “Open my eyes that I may see wondrous things from Your Word” Psalm 119:18. As I have prayed these verses God has opened my eyes to other please and prayers from Scripture that are so appropriate for my life right now. Yesterday as I was meditating on Scripture, He gave me this poem.  It reflects many prayers and promises from God’s Word. I hope you are blessed and challenged by His amazing Love and care of us.

A Prayer

Open my eyes
To the truth of your Word.
Grant me Your wisdom,
And grace to be heard.
Cleanse my heart,
And make me new.
Give me the desire,
To follow hard after You.
Search me and know me.
And root out the ill.
Plant in me Your love,
And a heart that is still.
Keep me from lying,
Turn my eyes from wrong,
Purify my ways.
For You may I long.
Let Your word sustain me,
And keep me from sin.
Let me hide it in my heart,
And recite it again.
Let the thoughts of my soul,
And the words that I say,
Reflect your goodness,
Day after day.
Your instructions uphold me.
They bring me delight.
May my praise be pleasing,
O, Lord, in Your sight.
Even in sorrow,
Let me cry out for You.
Only Your goodness
And grace will do.
And when I walk
Through the valley so low,
Comfort me with Your presence,
And revive me with hope.
For you are good,
And your ways are pure.
Your plans for me
Are solid and sure.
Work in me power,
To rest and believe.
Give me the desire,
To wait and receive.
May I mount up on wings,
As eagles that fly.
Finding your strength,
Renewing my life.
Your mercy so fresh,
Each day show to me.
O, Lord, grant me You.
This is my plea.
