Week 7, Day 4 – Lord, I Want to be Right

          Pray through Psalm 19:7-11 as you express to God your desire to be right as you live before Him. Personalize each of these prayer prompts by inserting your own current life situations. After each prayer segment, sit quietly and listen as the Holy Spirit speaks to your heart. As an extended prayer time, look elsewhere in the Word to confirm whatever the Holy Spirit impresses upon your heart. If what you “hear” in your heart is from God, there will be Scripture to substantiate the message.

  • “More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.” God, give me a greater hunger for Your word, and/or a deeper understanding of Your word whenever I hear or read it.
