Put on Christ

 

Good morning,

I hope you’re enjoying your holidays so far. For some, you may still be writing exams but I pray that you have enough strength to get through this final stretch of the semester. For  those who may not be in school, I hope you’re doing well with what you’re doing, and embracing this time of year 🙂

Today, I am going to copy a meaningful prayer that someone else has written into my prayer journal. I am deciding to look into the book of psalms, because there I can find so many wonderful prayers that can apply to you and me, anytime.

Psalm 146: The happiness of those whose help is in the Lord

Praise the Lord, O my soul!

While I live, I will praise the Lord!

I will sing praises to my God while i have my being

Do not put your trust in princes

Nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help

His spirit departs, he returns to the earth;

In that very day his plans perish

Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help,

Whose hope is in the Lord his God

Who made heaven and earth

The sea and all that is in them

Who keeps truth forever

Who excuses justice for the oppressed

Who gives food to the hungry

The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners

The Lord opens the eyes of the blind

The Lord raises those who are bowed down

The Lord loves the righteous

The Lord watches over the strangers

He relieves the fatherless and widow

But the way of the wicked he turns upside down

The Lord shall reign forever, Your God to all generations

Praise the Lord.
