Blessed Is the one.... whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
As we look to pray the scriptures we notice four thoughts, delight, law of the Lord, meditates and day and night. We use these words to ask the Lord to make them true of our lives. We turn the thoughts into questions and then into prayers. Let us pray together. I am praying in first person. This method tends to allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you while you are praying and also helps us “own” our response while praying.
Father, I am know that I am to delight in your Law. I am not really sure how to do that. I know how to delight in my wife and my children. But your law at times seems static. I know that I appreciate something when I spend time and value it. Help me to delight in your law. Jesus said that it was like spiritual bread in which we need to live. Lord I would not think of going a day without eating…help me not go a day without eating your word.
Father, help me to memorize and meditate on your word. By your strength Jesus, I can remember your word and where it is found.
I look forward to you helping me delight in your laws. In Jesus name amen
