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