Praying Through: Psalm 32:8-9

The Psalm

The Prayer

Spirit of Christ

Without you,

  • I am completely ignorant of you.

There are not enough classes in the world

  • to sit and learn about you.

There are not enough books

  • to sit and read to know you.

All the data in the world

  • multiplied one billion fold
  • couldn't even contain
  • what the Son has done
  • what the Father has thought
  • let alone how You move.

All knowledge, wisdom, and understanding

  • philosophies, logic, reason
  • science, medicine, and technology
  • comes from you
  • and is all your own.

More so

  • to even see your glory
  • to even call upon your name
  • to even pray to you
  • to be saved by you
  • that sheer ability and knowledge
  • you will need to give that to us first.

We are dead in our trespasses

  • and dead men do not cry out
  • Dead men do not think
  • Dead men cannot pray
  • Dead men cannot worship
  • unless you give them life.

Uncover our eyes

  • open our ears
  • change our minds
  • unmute our tongues
  • exchange our hearts
  • and make Your place
  • into our souls.

Mark us

  • seal us
  • unto the Father.

Praise your holy name.
