Prayer | June 10
Oh, that my ways were directed to keep Your statutes!
Then I would not be ashamed, when I look into all Your commandments.
I will praise You with uprightness of heart, when I learn Your righteous judgments.
I will keep Your statutes; Oh, do not forsake me utterly!
Father, we seek to be obedient, to know Your will and to do it, this day. Strengthen us and teach us to look to You every moment of the day whether we are encountering stress or joy. We know You draw near to us as we draw near to You and that if we choose to walk away from You, we do so at our own peril.
You tell us that being ashamed stems from disobedience. Thank You for giving us a conscience that is active and alive: The Word in us, sharper than a two edged sword, both correcting us and saving us, all at the same time.
Father, we greatly prefer to praise You and acknowledge You before men than to try to “go it alone”, as though our sufficiency was from our strength. Give us the resolve, we pray, to seek Your will in all things. In Jesus’ name, we pray, amen.
