Praying Through: Psalm 33:6

The Psalm

Psalm 33:6 (CSB) The heavens were made by the word of the LORD, and all the stars, by the breath of his mouth.

The Prayer

Creator and Redeemer

You are majestic

  • and altogether mighty.

You alone brought something

  • out of nothing.
  • You alone can do that.

When you created me,

  • you did so from what was created.

  • Out of dirt.

  • But you also created me

  • out of your heart

  • because of your love for me.

  • And you created me

  • out of your begotten

  • for He was the firstborn

  • among many brethen.

Because of my sin

  • I was destined to go back into dirt
  • apart from you
  • and under your wrath.

Yet, in your great love,

  • you predestined me
  • not to dirt but to life
  • not apart but to fullness of joy
  • not under your wrath but under your right hand
  • with pleasures forevermore.
