Prayer: Day 9

READ PSALM 119:65-72.
“Be good to Your servant, God; be as good as Your Word. Train me in good common sense; I’m thoroughly committed
to living Your way. Before I learned to answer You, I wandered all over the place, but now I’m in step with Your Word.
You are good, and the source of good; train me in Your goodness. The godless spread lies about me, but I focus my
attention on what You are saying; they’re bland as a bucket of lard, while I dance to the tune of Your revelation. My
troubles turned out all for the best—they forced me to learn from Your textbook. Truth from Your mouth means more
to me than striking it rich in a gold mine.”
—Psalm 119:65-72 (MSG)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The Psalmist was desperate for God to train him. When God trains us, we become good, as He is. Our
troubles and trials make us turn around for the better, for we turn to His Word during our times of
desperation. His Word becomes more precious to us than silver and gold.

TODAY’S PRAYERS

1. A PRAYER FOR MY LIFE:
Dear Lord, teach us Your ways, and show us Your paths.
2. A PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH:
Lord, You are good. Be with those persecuted for their faith in You. May they experience new
strength and courage, even as they face adversity.
3. A PRAYER FOR OUR WORLD:
Lord, I pray for those oppressed by others; may they experience a new freedom from their
oppressors. Also, bring deliverance through Jesus Christ to those held captive by oppressive
addictions.
