Today I read:

  • Genesis 20
  • Psalm 25
  • 2 Thessalonians 2
  • Matthew 18

My meditation was: Write a prayer to God using elements from each of the verses.

Lord Jesus Christ and God my Father, who loves me and by your grace gives me eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort me and strengthen me in every good thing I do and say.

O Lord, I give my life to you.
I trust in you, my God!
Show me the right path, Lord;
point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by your truth and teach me,
for you are the God who saves me.
All day long I put my hope in you.
Remember, Lord, your compassion and unfailing love.
Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth.
Remember me in the light of your unfailing love,
for you are merciful, Lord.
You are good and do what is right;
you shows the proper path to those who go astray.
You lead the humble in doing right,
teaching them your way.
You lead with unfailing love and faithfulness
all who keep your covenant and obey your demands.
For the honor of your name, O Lord,
forgive my many, many sins.
Who are those who fear the Lord?
You will show them the path they should choose.
You are a friend to those who fear you.
You teach them your covenant.
My eyes are always on you, Lord.
Forgive all my sins.
Protect me! Rescue my life from them!
May integrity and honesty protect me,
for I put my hope in you.

Help me turn from my sins and become as humble as a little child. Help me resist temptation and may I never be a source of temptation to another. Free me from sin and make me like you. Give me your vision to look and treat with love all of those who belong to you.

May it be so!
