Praying Through: Psalm 32:2

The Psalm

Psalm 32:2 (CSB) How joyful is a person whom the LORD does not charge with iniquity and in whose spirit is no deceit!

The Prayer

My Only Redeemer

I am filled with iniquity,

  • Lord, look at my sins?
  • How can you not count
  • my wickedness against me?

Are you a god

  • that turns his head
  • and ignores evil?
  • Or do you call something a sin
  • not a sin
  • and allow it to run rampant
  • and destroy everything
  • that you alone have created
  • and that you have loved?

My Lord,

  • you did not ignore my sin
  • you did not turn the other way
  • you did not declare evil not evil.
  • No!

You thought of me,

  • laid your affections upon me
  • saw me in my wickedness and deceit
  • and you loved me.

And then you sent your Son,

  • Jesus Christ the Holy One of God
  • who is God
  • to live as I should
  • and to carry his cross
  • and to place my sin
  • upon himself
  • and to attract Your wrath
  • upon himself
  • and saved me from the outermost
  • to himself.

Christ saved me in

  • Your grace
  • Your sovereign
  • Your power
  • alone.

Blessed be your name forever.
