One of Woodvale's women, Carolyn Cheer, loves the Word. Out of an intense 'one on one' with the Lord a few weeks ago she wrote this 'prayer'. Consider declaring these words over your lives, homes, families, careers and any other cares you are aware of. Many times circumstances won't change immediately but our attitudes and mindset will. There is life in the word!
“I pray to you, O LORD, my Rock. Do not turn a deaf ear to me for if you are silent, I might as well give up. (Ps. 28:1)
I confess to you O God, my heavenly father that I have failed to act as you have called me to. LORD, have mercy on me for my trust and faith in you was given room to waiver when it should have been rock steady. Yet you LORD, have been merciful and your faithfulness has not failed. “Praise the LORD! For he has heard my cry for mercy.” (Ps 28:6)
My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me,” And my heart responds, “LORD, I am coming.” (Ps 27:8) Teach me LORD, how to live, (Ps 27:11) so that I will act with integrity. (Ps 26:1) Lead me along the right path (Ps 27:11) so that I may be strengthened and my trust in the LORD would not waiver. (Ps 26:1)
O LORD, I give my life to you. I trust in you my God! (Ps 25:1) Search me, O God and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. (Ps 139:23) Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. (Ps 139:24) Remember, O LORD, your compassion and unfailing love. (Ps 25:6) For the honour of your name, O LORD, forgive my many, many sins (Ps 25:11). Hear me as I pray, O LORD. Be merciful and answer me! (Ps 27:7)
I am confident I will see the LORD’S goodness while I am here in the land of the living (Ps 27:13) I will wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, I will wait patiently for the LORD. (Ps 27:14)
The LORD is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant. (Ps 25:14) Teach me your decrees, O LORD; I will keep them to the end. (Ps 119:33) Give me understanding and I will obey your instructions. I will put them into practice with all my heart. (Ps 119:34) Oh, that my actions would consistently reflect your decrees! (119:5) Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions. (119:18)
Praise the LORD! Let all that I am praise the LORD. (Ps 146:1) I will praise the LORD as long as I live, I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath. (Ps 146:2)”
