Praying Gods Word-How Close He really is to us!
Father, your word says multitudes in Psalms 139:1-6 (as all your word does, I just wish I could retain all of it!) Your word is awesome, thank you. You gave me more grace and encouragement than a person has
the right to obtain. You said you examine my heart and know everything about me; you and I both know, that is not always so good; this is one verse that is probably not a favorite, because of my human characteristics (sinful nature I fight with)-but
as always, your GRACE covers me and I want to strive to do my best every day, so help me be open to ask this of you and help me to respond, reply and change what I need to in order to be like your Son Jesus and share His love with others.
You know when I sit down and when I stand up (that’s pretty close!) You know my thoughts even when I’m far away from you or others. You see me and go with me when I travel
in my car or sit in my chair or work at home. You see how I treat my family members (Father remind me of this one “before” I say or do something stupid and unpleasing to you).
You said you know everything I do, you even know what I am going to say before I say it (that’s kinda scary). You said you would go before me and follow me, I am really appreciative of this protection!! You PLACE YOUR HAND OF BLESSINGS
ON MY HEAD! I receive this every day. Your knowledge is too wonderful for me and more than I will ever be able to fathom. I’m thankful, by faith, that everything your word tells me will always stay in my heart even when my mind forgets. I receive your
word and blessings because I know you personally and will really see you someday (looking forward to seeing Paul too, the author of so many New Testament Books – wow what a man!) Thank you for everything!! Amen
