Praying Through: Psalm 37:8-9

The Psalm

Psalm 37 (CSB)
8 Refrain from anger and give up your rage; do not be agitated—it can only bring harm.

9 For evildoers will be destroyed, but those who put their hope in the LORD will inherit the land.

The Prayer

My Only God

I repent

  • of a life that exacted
  • vengeance for my wounds
  • revenge for my pain
  • justice for wrongs against me.

I repent for being wrathful.

You, O Lord, are the ONLY being

  • deserving of justice
  • because you have been wronged
  • deserving of vengeance
  • because you have been hurt
  • wrathful
  • because you are jealous for me.

Lord, I am repenting

  • of when I thought I was you.

Beat this out of me

  • make me your servant
  • keep me as your friend
  • love me as your lover
  • Be my Lord and my God forever.
