Praying Through: Psalm 37:5-6

The Psalm

Psalm 37 (CSB)
5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act,

6 making your righteousness shine like the dawn, your justice like the noonday.

The Prayer

My One Commitment

I love you Lord

  • and you are my heart's desire
  • for all of my days
  • I want to be by your side
  • and dwell with you
  • and waste my days with you
  • because you are the Lord of my life
  • and the love of my heart.

How amazing

  • that you would look upon
  • my sinful heart
  • and thought of love at first sight
  • there is none like you
  • there is none beside you
  • I stake all of my hope and trust in you
  • you are my God and my Lord forever
  • you are the center and totality of my heart
  • you are my will and my desire.


  • keep me close
  • never let me go
  • don't loosen your grip on me
  • because I couldn't stand it
  • and I rather die
  • then to be apart from you.
  • Because if I do,
  • then I will be with you.

Be my God.

  • Be my sweetest affections
  • and my deepest joy
  • and my fieriest passions.

I will praise you.
