July 13 Prayer
“You increase the strength of my soul.”
As I read this psalm wth all of its declarations I stop to consider;
What does create strength in my soul?
Who is it that deepens life within me?
Where do I find the strength fro my soul?
At the beginning of the day I give thanks for a new beginning
even though I have too many things to do today,
pressures of mounting takes and unfinished projects,
I must remember who is with me,
praise and pray
asking for help from the spirit for the more that will come.
Lay everything before Him now to pray along with the psalmist;
‘Lord, Today, I will bow down towards your holy temple
I will give thanks to your name and for your promises to me
‘When I call you answer me
You increase the strength of my soul.’
‘You are high and look on the lowly,
You give life though I walk amid affliction,
O Lord, your merciful love is eternal.’
You are the more I desire,
deepen you life within me.
I want to choose the better than.
Breathe fresh courage in me today,
May every word
I speak would bring healing life,
that every task would become a sacrament,
that you will finish every good thing that you began in me.
Strengthen my soul today
to move with grace along the pathway for the better,
the way that leads to finding beauty
