Praying Through: Psalm 119:9

The Psalm

Psalms 119:9 (CSB) How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping your word.

The Prayer

My Living Word

How can I keep my way pure?

  • By trusting in you
  • For your word says
  • You are the way, the truth, and the life
  • and
  • if I believe the Son of God
  • I will live forever
  • if I do not believe the Son of God
  • then your wrath remains upon me.

But then how do I believe in the Son perfectly?

  • I cannot
  • because I was born into sin
  • I have to have someone who was born perfectly
  • lived perfectly
  • died without sin
  • and because doing so
  • rose again from death
  • for me
  • because I cannot believe perfectly.

But the same Christ

  • whom I must trust for eternal life
  • is the same Christ
  • who lived and died for me.

Praise be the name of the Lord

  • who is alone
  • is worth to be praised and adored.
