Praying Through: Psalm 32:11

The Psalm

Psalm 32:11 (CSB) Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones; shout for joy, all you upright in heart.

The Prayer

My Joy and Righteousness

When I was

  • a beast before you
  • a worm beneath the dirt
  • a blasphemer of your holy name
  • an accuser of your beloved people
  • a violent opponent of your dwelling
  • a blind fool of your glory
  • a ignorant recipient of your tender mercies
  • a stonewall to your amazing grace
  • a rejecter of your great love
  • a dead man in my own sins

You thought of me

  • you stirred your affections for me
  • you loved me
  • you chose me
  • you called me
  • you saved me
  • you gave me faith
  • you washed away my sins
  • you regenerated my heart
  • you filled me with your Spirit
  • you changed my mind
  • you opened my eyes
  • you cleared my ears
  • you unmuted my tongue
  • you adopted me
  • you called me your own
  • you lavished you affections upon me
  • you justified me
  • you discipline me
  • you sanctify me
  • you conform me to look like your Son
  • you wash me in the water of your word
  • you pour out mercies on me
  • you give me grace upon grace
  • you forever love me
  • you glorified me

Only then and now

  • my heart is filled with joy
  • my soul stands upright in your presence
  • my being dwells with you
  • my mind captures thoughts towards you
  • my strength chokes out my sin
  • do I love you

Be my love.

Be my everything.

For I am yours

  • and you are mine.
