Sunday Prayer 15

You, the righteous God who probes minds and hearts. (Psalm 7:9b)

Lord,

You know me through and through
for You are the probing, all-knowing God.

You know my hopes and dreams,
even as You know my dilemmas and fears.

When I dive into the pool of future hopes,
I often encounter the changing currents and waves,
which leave me tangled in the cords of confusion.
The circumstances of my life threaten me
and rise up to overwhelm me.

Save me, my God, in Your goodness and grace;
rescue me from foes outside and inside
that I might stand up in Your ways.

I trip and falter like a drunken man in the dark of night;
sober me up and send me out on Your pathways of light.
All for Your glory in Jesus’ name,
Amen.
