Praying Through: Psalm 31:9-10

The Psalm

Psalm 31:9–10 (CSB)
9 Be gracious to me, LORD, because I am in distress; my eyes are worn out from frustration— my whole being as well.

10 Indeed, my life is consumed with grief and my years with groaning; my strength has failed because of my iniquity, and my bones waste away.

The Prayer

Keeper of my heart

I have spent all of my days wandering from your presence searching for new idols finding new ways to sin against you

And my life aches and groans in pain, not only of the sin against me but mostly because of my own sin.

Lord, hear my cries do not abandon me do not let me see evil do not take your Spirit from me

Lord, I have no idea of what you’ve called me but it will not be easy and it will take all of your grace and you must give me your heart and Spirit for me to do your will. But I love you Lord and I cry out loud to worship and praise your holy name. My soul and heart rejoices. May everything in me and all that I have bless your holy name Forever. Amen.
