Praying Through: Psalm 32:4

The Psalm

Psalm 32:4 (CSB) For day and night your hand was heavy on me; my strength was drained as in the summer’s heat. Selah

The Prayer

My Judge and Mercy Alone

Every sin against me does not counter any of my sins.

Their sins are their sins. My sins are my sins. And you will judge accordingly.

But I know of your perfection, your beauty your majesty your holiness and your righteousness.

If you looked upon me, you will see my treason my affairs my thoughts my heart's desires my lusts my wickedness!

And by that, you will be left wanting.

But it is my sins, my treason my trespass my rage my war against you that you looked upon and saw my infinite shortcomings and decided alone upon your grace alone upon your mercy alone upon your sweet love and you saved me.

How?

I was meant to die I was meant to take on the cosmos-filled wrath I was meant for hell

But you sent your Son to die for me to absorb every ounce of wrath to and descend into hell so that I might live and move and my being with you unto you by you through you and from you alone.

You are my God forever.

Forever I will love you.
