Praying the Psalms- Psalm 7

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 7
O righteous God, You are my refuge and my shield.  You are my protector and my hiding place.  I thank You for the many times I have hidden beneath Your wing this week to receive peace and comfort.

Only You can search my mind and heart and judge rightly.  I invite You to do just that.  I will not cover up my inequity from You anymore but ask You, Jesus, to cover my sins.  By Your spirit, search me and convict me and empower me to repent.  

Remind me to trust You, to turn to You and away from fear and shame.  Lord, I thank You for the privilege of approaching You, a Holy God, with my petitions and for the assurance that You will answer!  

In Jesus' Name.  Amen.

I joined Jenny as well this week. She has a beautiful blog. I wish we could leave comments for her, but I understand her thoughts behind not allowing them.

I read blogs mostly for spiritual food and Catholic thoughts and ideas, of which I have been pleasantly surprised with what I have encountered.

God bless you.

"I invite You...I will not cover up..." such bold prayers full of trust!

It is such a blessing to be able to approach the Lord boldly and receive forgiveness and help. I echo your prayer, "empower me to repent." Thank you for sharing your heart.
