Praying Through: Psalm 34:9

The Psalm

Psalm 34 (CSB)
9 You who are his holy ones, fear the LORD, for those who fear him lack nothing.

The Prayer

The Absolute Longings of my Heart

My God

  • I have suffered so much due
  • to all the sin I’ve committed
  • all the righteous acts that I have failed to do
  • and all the wickedness done to me.

I was destined to die

  • I was limited to this world
  • and it’s smallish pleasures
  • that fulfill nothing
  • in my eternal heart.

And because I am a son of Adam

  • I feared only everything not Godx
  • My attention was away from you
  • My gaze was away from your face
  • My heart flees from you

Capture my heart

  • Again and again

Capture my love

  • until I know no other love

Capture my life

  • until you take me home forever

Tell me your will

  • so I can do it

Tell me your heart

  • so I can see if my heart matches
  • and repent if not

Tell me I am yours forever

  • so I can be alive
  • and free in you

Praise your holy name forever
