Blessed are those you choose
and bring near to live in your courts!
We are filled with the good things of your house,
of your holy temple (Psalm 65:4).

Lord, You created the universe.
All that exists belongs to You,
and You provide it to us.
You promise that Your abundance is ours forever,
for all who draw close to You through Jesus, Your Son.

How can it be that God would give heaven to those who love Him?
And why would anyone turn Him down?

Dear God, Your Presence is available to me right now.
Keep me mindful of Your Holy Spirit within me.
Let me never take Your blessings for granted.
May my life be one of gratitude and praise. Amen.

Bible Open to Psalms

For you have heard my vows, O God;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name (Psalm 61:5 NIV).

Dear God, Creator of the universe,
Salvation of humanity, all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving,
I kneel at the foot of Your throne and worship You.
You alone are worthy of the praises of all the world.
May every soul proclaim You as Lord.
You have promised me eternal life in Your presence and access to all Your abundance.
You have adopted me as a daughter of the King.
Who am I to deserve such blessing?
I am no one, yet You love me anyway, through the intercession of Your Son.
Thank You, Lord, for Your mercy to me, a sinner. Amen.

Bible Open to Psalms

Do you rulers speak justly?
Do you judge uprightly among men?
No, in your heart you devise injustice,
and your hands mete out violence on the earth (Psalm 58: 1-2 NIV).

Lord, in Your sovereign wisdom and love,
You have established our leaders.
We notice that some of them are good and govern with righteousness;
some are evil and serve only themselves.
Lord, help us respond appropriately to leaders around the world.
Help us to build alliances with the regimes we should support.
Help us to confront those leaders who are abusive to their own people.
Give us the discernment to be able to tell the difference.
Lord, in Your mercy, give us good leaders.
Help us root out those of despicable character.
Give wisdom to our President, our legislature, and our judges.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
May Your Spirit dwell among us; make our country great. Amen.

The Psalm Project #20

Bible Open to Psalms

I am in the midst of lions;
I lie among ravenous beasts—
men whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongues are sharp swords. . .
When I am afraid,
I will trust in you (Psalm 57:4; 56:3 NIV).

Lord, I am horrified when I observe the people in this world,
when I hear their lies.
They speak evil as if it were truth.
They slander the innocent and praise the wicked.
They attack the righteous.
Everything is upside down.

Dear Lord, set Your creation in order.
Destroy the corrupt; make all things new.

Dear Jesus, when the end days come,
help me be courageous, because
I know the outcome.
I will welcome You when You come in glory.
Come quickly, Lord Jesus. Amen.

Bible Open to Psalms

Your tongue plots destruction;
it is like a sharpened razor, you who practice deceit (Psalm 52:2).

Lord, we are surrounded by negativity and downright lies.
Sometimes I can’t figure out who or what is true.
Lord, silence the deceivers. Expose the liars.
Let me not be taken in by manipulators.
Lord, only You are truth; I turn to You in my confusion.
Give me wisdom and discernment in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
