Praying Through the Psalms: Psalm 25

Lord, to you this morning, I lift of my soul. O my God, I trust in you. Forgive me, my God. I know that lately I have not been putting my trust in you. I have been working and operating in my own power. I have been striving rather than relying. I want to rely fully on you. I know that if I wait on you, I will not be ashamed. Lord, make me know your ways, and lead me into your truth, for you are the God of my salvation. I praise you for your salvation. I cannot thank you enough. You remember me according to your compassion and lovingkindness and not according to my sins! Thank you Jesus! Thank you for your sacrifice. For your goodness' sake, O God, you always view me through the blood of your Son and not as I stand on my own. Lord, you are good and upright. Therefore, you have instructed me, a sinner, in your way. I know that it is not for my sake alone, but for your name's sake that you have pardoned my sin. My sin is great before you, and it is no small thing that you would dismiss all charges against me. You have plucked my soul from hell and have placed it in eternal prosperity. You have brought me into your covenant, so that I know I can completely rely on you. So my eyes will continually and always be toward you, for it is only you who can pluck my feet out of the net. Father, thank you for always being so gracious with me. I love the way you deal with me. Thank you for your rescue! I take refuge in you. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I will wait for you.
