I like to pray while I'm reading the scriptures, then I know that I am praying God's will.
Psalm 48 in bold
1) Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
In the city of our God, His holy mountain.
(me)Yes, great are You Lord & greatly to be praised.
2) Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth,
Is Mount Zion in the far north,
The city of the great King.
3) God, in her palaces,
Has made Himself known as a stronghold.
4) For, lo, the kings assembled themselves,
They passed by together.
5) They saw it, then they were amazed;
They were terrified, they fled in alarm.
6) Panic seized them there,
Anguish, as of a woman in childbirth.
7) With the east wind
You break the ships of Tarshish.
8) As we have heard so have we seen
In the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God;
God will establish her forever.
(me)You are in control.
9) We have thought on Your lovingkindness, O God,
In the midst of Your temple.
(me) Help me think about your lovingkindness.
10) As is Your name, O God,
So is Your praise to the ends of the earth;
Your right hand is full of righteousness.
(me) Yes, all praise is Yours and in Your hands are righteousness.
11) Let Mount Zion be glad,
Let the daughters of Judah rejoice
Because of Your judgments.
(me) Let us all rejoice and be glad.
12) Walk about Zion and go around her;
Count her towers;
13) Consider her ramparts;
Go through her palaces,
That you may tell it to the next generation.
14) For such is God,
Our God forever and ever;
He will guide us until death.
(me) Our lives are in Your loving hands. Thank You that we are safe there.
I pray these things in Your precious name. Amen
