We’re reading through, and with intentionality, praying through the Psalms during this school year. There are 150 Psalms, divided into 180 different readings. See this post for more info.
The audio file below is the entire episode for today. The text below is today’s prayer. I’m reading the Contemporary English Version of the Text, copyright 1995, by the American Bible Society.
God. Abba. Father.
We know our lives on this earth are tenuous, at best. In the grand scheme of all eternity, the few decades we walk here are just a blip. And yet, it’s all we know. And we know that, as the Apostle Paul says, our actions and works are like filthy rags. Sin comes too easily some days.
Before we know it, our lives are over; a mere vapor.
Paul continues to remind us that the wages of sin are death. And everyone sins. So, we will all face your holy judgement of death?
No. Because of your great grace, coupled with your amazing forgiveness, our future is secure. Thank you for saving us! Thank you for the work of Jesus on the cross on our behalf.
We praise you today and always!
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
