Praying Through: Psalm 112 Light

The Psalm

Psalm 112 (CSB)
1 Hallelujah! Happy is the person who fears the LORD, taking great delight in his commands.

2 His descendants will be powerful in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.

3 Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.

4 Light shines in the darkness for the upright. He is gracious, compassionate, and righteous.

5 Good will come to the one who lends generously and conducts his business fairly.

6 He will never be shaken. The righteous one will be remembered forever.

7 He will not fear bad news; his heart is confident, trusting in the LORD.

8 His heart is assured; he will not fear. In the end he will look in triumph on his foes.

9 He distributes freely to the poor; his righteousness endures forever. His horn will be exalted in honor.

10 The wicked one will see it and be angry; he will gnash his teeth in despair. The desire of the wicked leads to ruin.

The Prayer


When you sent your Son

  • to open my eyes
  • to open my ears
  • to unmute my tongue
  • to open my mind
  • to make his home in my heart.

I see the light of the world

  • and I no longer love the darkness.

I am your child forever.
