Prayer for today – praying the scripture Psalm 25.
Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart habe multiplied; free me from my anguish. Look upon my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins. For the sake of your name, YHVH, forgive my iniquity, though it is great. Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you are good, O YHVH.
Show me your ways, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are YHVH my savior and my hope is in you all day long. See how my enemies have increased and how fiercly they hate me! To you, YHVH, I lift up my soul; in you I trust.
Do not let my enemies triumph over me. Guard my life and rescue me; let me not be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. Your word says no one whose hope is in YHVH will ever be put to shame, but they will be put to shame whonare treacherous without excuse. May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you.
On earth, and in my life, as it is in heaven. Thank You, YHVH for receiving my prayer.
