Praying Through: Psalm 23:6a Surely Goodness

The Psalm

Psalm 23:6a (CSB) Only goodness

The Prayer

Great God,

I am reminded what Christ declared: You alone are good.

You are the source of all good but my heart flees and wanders from you

But in your Word,

  • you declared me holy
  • because you are holy.
  • you declared me righteous
  • because Christ is righteous
  • you declared me justified
  • because you alone justified.

Then because of who You are,

  • I am awashed in your grace upon grace
  • wake up to new mercies every morning
  • abounded in your steadfast love.

I praise you for your goodness.

I praise you

  • because you define what good is
  • and we do not.
