Praying Through: Psalm 37:1-2

The Psalm

Psalm 37 (CSB)
1 Do not be agitated by evildoers; do not envy those who do wrong.

2 For they wither quickly like grass and wilt like tender green plants.

The Prayer

My Only Source

What is our lives, O Lord

  • that we would be counted as precious
  • that you would be mindful of us
  • that you would set your affections upon us
  • that you would give your grace to us
  • and you would want to cherish us?

But Lord,

  • we are here for a moment
  • our lives are but a blink
  • your word says,
  • like dew on grass
  • until the early morning sun
  • scorches the fields
  • and burns us all away.


  • keep my mind on these things
  • that what I might do here
  • will give you eternal glory.

Let wait upon your words

  • so I might only prophesy
  • and build up your church.

Let my hands and feet

  • run after
  • those in need
  • and serve according to your will.

Let me only herald

  • the eternal kingdom
  • of the Son of David
  • and evangelize till the end of the earth
  • "The Kingdom of God is here!"

Help me not waste one second of my life

  • but give you eternal glory.

I pray this in your Son's precious and holy name forever.
