Day 12

Adoration

God is jealous and the Lord avenges;
The Lord takes vengeance and is filled with wrath.
The Lord takes vengeance on His adversaries,
And He reserves wrath against His enemies.
The Lord is slow to anger and great in power
And will not leave the guilty unpunished.
His way is in the whirlwind and the storm,
And clouds are the dust of His feet. (Nahum 1:2-3)

Are You a God nearby, And not a God far away?
Can anyone hide in secret places So that You cannot see him?
Do You not fill heaven and earth? (Jeremiah 23:23-24)

Pause to express your thoughts of praise and worship.

 

Confession

The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Wisdom hates pride and arrogance
And the evil way and the perverse mouth. (Proverbs 8:13)

Ask the Spirit to search your heart and reveal any areas of unconfessed sin. Acknowledge these to the Lord and thank Him for His forgiveness.


Renewal

May I not trust in myself or in my own righteousness, nor
view others with contempt. (Luke 18:9)

May I not be like the man who did not make God his strength
but trusted in the abundance of his wealth and strengthened
himself in his evil desires. (Psalm 52:7)

Pause to add your own prayers for personal renewal.

 

Petition

Turn to me and be gracious to me,
For I am lonely and afflicted.
The troubles of my heart have multiplied;
Free me from my distresses.
Look on my affliction and my pain,
And forgive all my sins. (Psalm 25:16-18)

Faithfulness as a Steward

Intercession

May I remind others to be subject to rulers and authorities, to
be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to slander no
one, to be peaceable and gentle, and to show true humility
toward all men. (Titus 3:1-2)

Affirmation

I am always of good courage and know that as long as I am at
home in the body, I am away from the Lord. For I live by
faith, not by sight. I am of good courage and would prefer to
be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.
(2 Corinthians 5:6-8)

Now I am a child of God, and what I shall be has not yet been
revealed. I know that when He is revealed, I shall be like Him,
for I shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in
Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. (1 John 3:2-3)

Pause to reflect upon these biblical affirmations.

 

Thanksgiving

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
Because He has visited us and has redeemed His people.
He has raised up a horn of salvation for us
In the house of His servant David
(As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets of long ago),
Salvation from our enemies
And from the hand of all who hate us—
To show mercy to our fathers
And to remember His holy covenant,
The oath He swore to our father Abraham,
To rescue us from the hand of our enemies,
And to enable us to serve Him without fear
In holiness and righteousness before Him all our days.
(Luke 1:68-75)

Pause to offer your own expressions of thanksgiving.

 

Closing Prayer

The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul.
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart.
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever.
The judgments of the Lord are true and altogether righteous.
They are more desirable than gold, than much pure gold;
They are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.
Moreover, by them is Your servant warned;
In keeping them there is great reward. (Psalm 19:7-11)
