Praying Scripture – 3/28/2020 – Lent

Like you, my life has been turned upside down by the coronavirus and some weeks I may not have time to write my regular blog posts. I don’t want to leave you hanging entirely, so those weeks I hope that you’ll join me in praying through an additional passage of Scripture on Saturday. Thank you for your grace!

Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;
2 Lord, hear my voice.
  Let your ears be attentive
  to my cry for mercy.

If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,
  Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness,
  so that we can, with reverence, serve you.

Psalm 130:1-4 (NIV)

Gracious and merciful Lord,
I cry out to you today, Father. Hear me. Be attentive to may cry for your mercy and comfort. My family, community, town, country desperately need your mercy, protection and grace right now. Bring physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Bring revival. I thank You that You love Your people and that You hear our cries. I thank You that You have made a path for us into Your presence through the death and resurrection of Your Son. Thank You for the privledge of coming boldly before Your throne. There I find forgiveness. There I find grace for whatever today holds. Not only do I ask for strength for today, but also for wisdom and discernment to guide my words, thoughts, and choices. Transform any fear in my heart into trust and reverence. Guide my thoughts and actions that the may honor You. Show me how to serve You and Your body in a world that has been turned upside down for so many. Make me an instrument of Your peace and love. In Your Son’s name I pray, Amen.
