PRAYER CORNER/PRAYER GUIDE:

PSALM 40, 14.05.20

___________________________________________________________________

PLEASE NOTE: PRAYER GUIDE WILL TREAT DIFFERENTLY WHAT THE PSALMIST USUALLY DOES. THE WRITER WILL REVERT TO THE FORMAT OF BEGINNING THE PRAYER/PSALM WITH SUPPLICATION, INSTEAD OF, AS HE DOES IN THIS PSALM, PUTTING IT AT THE END. SO YOU WILL NOTICE THAT VERSES 12-17 WILL BE IMPLEMENTED AT THE BEGINNING, NOT AT THE END.

Oh, Lord, there is so much trouble all around me; everything/everyone seems to be coming at me, attacking, threatening me. I, too, keep falling into traps, sinning when I didn’t intend to do so . ..  forgive me, Lord. Disappoint and confuse all who want to harm me; turn away and disgrace all who want to hurt me. Embarrass and shame all those who persecute, accuse, and treat me unfairly. 

Please show that you care and come to my rescue. Hurry and help me! Father, I thank You that when I wait patiently, You always hear my prayer and answer me. Bring me back onto that solid rock now, I pray. 

I am ever grateful that You always rescue me; that i know I can count on You; and I will always testify of Your faithfulness, of how I trust in You, for “I will never be able to tell all You have done in my life!” You know Father, that I will always give You the Glory, and honour You by testifying to others: you know I told them, “Our Lord always helps! I did not keep silent. I said, “Our Lord is kind. He is faithful and caring, and he saves us.”

Thank-You, Heavenly Father, that You have taught me the joy of pleasing You; and that this is something so important to You. Thank-You for placing Your law in my heart. Thank-You for showing me that it is not sacrifices and offerings/works that please You, but my obedience and my heart’s desire to please You, which I can only do by having Your law in my heart. 

Thank-You, Lord Jesus/Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, that You have shown me how You work: You bless all of those who trust you, Lord, and refuse to worship the idols of this world; and how You have planned marvelous things for me/us. No one is like you!”

Make me eternally grateful for how You care about me and come to my rescue.

I pray in Jesus/Yeshua’s mighty Name, the Name above all names. Amen.
