Praying Through: Psalm 36:7-9

The Psalm

Psalm 36 (CSB)
7 How priceless your faithful love is, God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

8 They are filled from the abundance of your house. You let them drink from your refreshing stream.

9 For the wellspring of life is with you. By means of your light we see light.

The Prayer

My Only Steadfast Love

I love you, Lord but only for a little while. I have known you for most of my life but loved you just a little.

I have seen your love for me started with my grandmother and then my mom My family is wicked and deceived and I had no inheritance. I was introduced to the revolting evil at an age when I should have not known and that sin quickly overcame my heart and infected my soul.

The devil had me early and I kept trying to end my life.

But you alone preserved my life when I was treasonous against you gave me grace when I was a sinner all the more saved me from the utmost when I was deserving of wrath gifted me your heart in exchange for my concrete gave me your Son in exchange for my sin gave me your Spirit so I will be marked as your son forever.

My God, your love as always been on my life and I see it now preserve me keep me in your hands and never let me go.

I love you Lord increase my heart and affections towards you.
