Praying Through: Psalm 36:1-4

The Psalm

Psalm 36 (CSB)
1 An oracle within my heart concerning the transgression of the wicked person: Dread of God has no effect on him.

2 For with his flattering opinion of himself, he does not discover and hate his iniquity.

3 The words from his mouth are malicious and deceptive; he has stopped acting wisely and doing good.

4 Even on his bed he makes malicious plans. He sets himself on a path that is not good, and he does not reject evil.

The Prayer

My Only Deliverer

How often do I preach against the sin in others guilt deep in the hearts of men and as they continue to plot in vain as if there is no God.

But my life was filled to the hilt with my own wickedness perversions that few can know evil that cause some to shudder sin that churns and burns in my heart mind and soul continuously.

I was one of these worthless men that sinned all the more I was ill-deserving of any leniency I could not afford grace.

But you O Lord had me in your sights and you had sweetest mercy for me and you pulled me out of hell and your rescued me from death and you loved me and you saved me and you bless me.

My God, keep your hand on my life and keep turning my heart towards you.
