Praying the Psalms- Psalm 4

Jenny has begun a journey of praying her way through the Psalms that I have decided to join. Each weekend, we will pray through one psalm and post our prayer and/or meditations on that psalm as the Lord leads. Check out her journey: Praying the Psalms

Psalm 4
Heavenly Father,
I am so grateful that this week has been one of answered prayer.
You, O righteous God, have given me relief from my distress,
You have been merciful to me and have heard my prayers.

I thank You for Your reminders not to sin in my anger.
And for Your forgiveness when I do!
Help me to continually search my heart and confess my sins before You.
Help me to be silent and still in order to hear Your voice.

Lord, I want to offer You the right sacrifices of a broken spirit and a contrite heart.
I want to put my trust in You, Your Word and the things You whisper to me personally.

You have filled my heart with joy unspeakable
and let me lie down in peace and sleep.
And I am eternally grateful!
In Jesus' Precious Name.  Amen.
