Prayer for illumination: September 8, 2013 …

How can a young man cleanse his way?
By taking heed according to Your word.
With our whole hearts we have sought You;
Oh, let us not wander from Your commandments!
Your word we have hidden in our hearts,
That we might not sin against You.
Blessed are You, O LORD!
Teach us Your statutes.
With our lips we have declared
All the judgments of Your mouth.
We have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,
As much as in all riches.
We will meditate on Your precepts,
And contemplate Your ways.
We will delight ourselves in Your statutes;
We will not forget Your word.

O Father, indeed, we pray that we might never forget your word…that by Your Holy Spirit You might implant it in our hearts and minds…that it might be our constant guide…our constant stay. Father, I come before You and before this congregation in repentance. I pray for Your forgiveness for my poor handling of Your word last week. I pray, O God, that as we look at your word again, that you would open it to us, that it might be clear to us, O God, and forthright. And Father we pray that the words of my mouth and the meditation of all our hearts might be in all ways acceptable in your sight, O God, our Fortress, our Strength our Rock and our Redeemer.

Amen
