Psalm 37 prayer

“Trust in the Lord and do good…”
“Take delight in the Lord…”
“Commit everything you do to the Lord…”
“Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act…”
“Put your hope in the Lord…”
“Travel steadily along his path…”
- Psalm 37

What a word, what an honor! What peace, fulfillment; Life flows from these words! What would my life, my heart look like if…
If I trusted You?
If I took delight in You?
If I committed everything to You?
If I would be still in Your presence, at Your feet?
If I waited patiently for You?
If I put my hope in You?
If I walked steadily at Your side, following You as You call me to?

Would I become like You?
Would my heart change from darkness to light?
Would Your holiness, Your spirit become mine?

Oh Jesus. Father. Light of the world, Word that existed before time. I AM. Come Lord; come and make me whole!

Help me, Father, to trust You and do good!
Help me to delight in You, Jesus!
Help me to commit everything to You, Master!
Help me to be still at Your feet, my King, and wait!
Help me to put my hope in You, Savior!
Guide me as I walk Your path, Holy Spirit!

More, Jesus. More of You and less of me.
