Praying the Psalms- Psalm 12

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 and join us in Praying the Psalms.

Psalm 12
While my flesh wants to exclude myself from those described in this psalm and simply call for You to arise against such people, Your Spirit is gently reminding me of the times, even today as we prepare our home to celebrate Your Resurrection, that I have acted ungodly, faithless, deceitful, boastful, sharp tongued and oppressive.  And so in obedience to Your Spirit in me, I confess these moments to You.  I ask for Your mercy and forgiveness.  I remember the first words You uttered from the Cross, "Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do."  And I am thankful that I have another chance to walk with You and to press on toward the goal.  Yes, Lord, Your Word is flawless and it is also "living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."   Without it's conviction right now, I might have continued this day and these preparations in bondage.  But instead I will choose to allow Your Word to be alive and active in me!
In Jesus' Name.  Amen.
