“Let the peoples praise You, O God; let all the peoples praise You. Let the nations be glad and sing for joy; for You will judge the peoples with uprightness and guide the nations on the earth.” (Psalm 67:3-4)
Lord how much better would this world be if they just stopped fighting against the truth, seeking to replace it with their idea of the truth. Alas, the world continues its battle and I along with them. Bring me to the place where I praise you in spite of what those around me do. You are the righteous judge and it shall be as You determine. Guide me to live in that knowledge always.
Lord, You know the struggle in my heart. I desire those things which are of no value and flee from Your statutes which are more precious than gold or silver. Judge my heart that I may be freed of those things which hinder me, and lead me in Your ways now and always to be one who praises You in season and out of season. Righteous judge, give me Your righteousness.
Righteousness Incarnate, Jesus my Savior, guide me in the way of truth that You have established that I may be guided in Your way now and always. Lead me forth from this moment to live in the truth that all things are known and that You are guiding me in the way I should go. Help me see through the cloud of this age to become and be the person You have created me to be. Amen.
