Saturday Prayer 40

Surely, Lord, You bless the righteous; You surround them with Your favor as with a shield. (Psalm 5:12)

Father,
I stand upon Jesus Christ who is my righteousness.
There is no one who is perfectly righteous
but through the obedience of Jesus
many have been made righteous.
So, standing upon this righteousness
given through Christ,
I ask, Lord, that You would surround me
with Your favor like a shield.
Bring Your favor into my relationships.
Bring Your favor around my activities.
Bring Your favor around my personal life.
I depend upon You and trust You.
Guard me with favor throughout this day.

One thought on “Saturday Prayer 40

  1. What a great word this morning Matt and timely. We have Wednesday night Men’s Discipleship/Support Bible study and for the past two weeks have been talking about righteousness, We are processing two statements:

    God is not interested in changing us – because He already has. He made us new men, recreated in true (vs. self) righteousness and holiness. (Eph, 4:24).

    My righteousness is not measured by how little I sin, but by how I receive, give and practice love.

    Your prayer this morning fits right in. I will share it with the guys. Keep those good posts coming.
