This week’s content comes from The Diary of Private Prayer By John Baillie
Each day you will receive a morning and an evening prayer. Join the the rest of the church as we pray the same prayer at the same time (if you can) at 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM each day.
Wednesday 8:00 AM Prayer
O GOD, you are my God; 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. So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous ordinances. Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble. How can young people keep their way pure? By guarding it according to your word. Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all day long. Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips. Keep my steps steady according to your promise, and never let iniquity have dominion over me. O Lord, who may abide in your tent? Who may dwell on your holy hill? Those who walk blamelessly, and do what is right, and speak the truth from their heart; who do not slander with their tongue, and do no evil to their friends, nor take up a reproach against their neighbors; in whose eyes the wicked are despised, but who honor those who fear the Lord; who stand by their oath even to their hurt; who do not lend money at interest, and do not take a bribe against the innocent. Those who do these things shall never be moved. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen.
