Day Eighteen of Thirty Days of Prayers from the Psalms
Psalms 40, 41, 48, 49, 51, 119
I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. Psalm 40:1
Heavenly Father, thank you for giving me this day, for hearing my prayers. When I wait
patiently for you to help me, you turn to me, lifting me up and setting my feet on the path
I should walk. Father, you give me blessings upon blessings.
[Recite your blessings from the Lord.]
Thank you for your presence in my life. You are my source of joy, security, and
salvation. You are my defender and guide forever. I donʼt have to fear when trouble
comes, for you are with me. You desire complete honesty from me when I pray, and
when I give you thanks with all my heart, it honors you. Thank you, Lord, that I am
considered precious in your eyes. My true happiness is found walking in the path of
your commands. So I walk in the freedom you give and share this joy with others. When
I ponder the direction of my life, I turn to you for answers, and you give me good
judgment and knowledge.
Thank you, Lord, for pouring your mercy out on me, your servant.
