Day 13

Adoration

O Lord, You have searched me and You know me.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
You understand my thoughts from afar.
You scrutinize my path and my lying down
And are acquainted with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue,
O Lord, You know it completely.
You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is too lofty for me to attain. (Psalm 139:1-6)

Pause to express your thoughts of praise and worship.

 

Confession

O Lord, be gracious to me;
Heal my soul, for I have sinned against You. (Psalm 41:4)

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 worry about my life, what I will eat or what I will
drink; or about my body, what I will wear. Life is more than
food, and the body more than clothes. The birds of the air do
not sow or reap or gather into barns, and yet my heavenly
Father feeds them. Am I not much more valuable than they?
Who by worrying can add a single hour to his life? And why
do I worry about clothes? I will consider how the lilies of the
field grow; they neither labor nor spin, yet not even Solomon
in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. But if God so
clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow
is thrown into the fire, will He not much more clothe me?
So may I not worry, saying, “What shall I eat?” or “What shall
I drink?” or “What shall I wear?” For the pagans run after all
these things, and my heavenly Father knows that I need them.
But may I seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness,
and all these things will be added to me. (Matthew 6:25-33;
Luke 12:22-31)

May I be more concerned about the things of God than the things of men. (Mark 8:33)

Pause to add your own prayers for personal renewal.

May I follow Your commands and precepts and be careful to

Affirmation

The fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
And to depart from evil is understanding. (Job 28:28)

Who is the man that fears the Lord?
He will instruct him in the way he should choose.
(Psalm 25:12)

Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord,
Who walks in His ways. (Psalm 128:1)

The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him,
Who put their hope in His unfailing love. (Psalm 147:11)

Pause to reflect upon these biblical affirmations.

 

Thanksgiving

And now therefore you have sorrow; but I will see you again
and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from
you. And in that day you will not ask Me any question. I tell
you the truth, whatever you ask the Father in My name He
will give you. Until now you have asked for nothing in My
name; ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
(John 16:22-24)

The Father Himself loves me because I have loved Jesus and
have believed that He came forth from God. (John 16:27)

Pause to offer your own expressions of thanksgiving.

 

Closing Prayer

You have shown me what is good;
And what does the Lord require of me
But to act justly and to love mercy
And to walk humbly with my God? (Micah 6:8)

We will all stand before the judgment seat of God. For it is
written,
“As I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow before Me,
And every tongue will confess to God.”
So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.
(Romans 14: 10b-12)
