Pray the Scriptures – My Prayer:
I will thank the Lord because he is just; I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.
Lord, I pray for direction, that my steps be ordered according to Your Word and will for me. Let all of the wrong paths that Satan endeavors to tempt me with be illuminated by the light of Your love so that I may instead see the right direction to head, which leads to You.
As I move to apply Your Word to each day, help me to see You in everything.
Jesus said that there were those who search the Scriptures because they think they give them eternal life. But the Scriptures point to Jesus! Yet they refuse to come to Him to receive this life.
There goes I but for the grace of God.
Continue to guide my steps toward the right direction, which is straight to Jesus Christ. For through Him, I am able to have right relationship and fellowship with You. Let my faith remain strong and let my hope be in the God who does not force me to follow truth, but allows me to choose truth and life by my own free will
An amazing life, Yes, I believe!
Thank you Lord that I believe in Your Son and all He has done for me, leading me in the right direction, away from foolish thoughts and actions, a constant walk of Victory.
Then Jesus said to them, “You foolish people! You find it so hard to believe all that the prophets wrote in the Scriptures. Wasn’t it clearly predicted that the Messiah would have to suffer all these things before entering his glory?” Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.
When I truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and recognize that each page of Scripture points to Him, I am no longer walking a foolish walk but am able to proceed in the right direction and live accordingly so that I may have everlasting life. I am able to enjoy this journey and have peace about the choices that I make.
Lord, I want not only to walk in the right direction, but I want to come to You with my whole self. For Jesus tells me that I must love the Lord my God with all my heart, all my soul, and all my mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. I aim to follow it. I will trust in Your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me. I will sing to You Lord because You are good to me.
No matter the condition of the road to You, with life’s ups and downs and in’s and out’s, I will proceed in the right direction and receive all that You promise. Entering into Your presence with Your arms wide open I obtain every bit of what I need.
This I pray in Jesus’ Name. Not my will but Your will be done. For Your Glory! Amen.
