Day 118: Prayer for the saints’ attitude toward the Word of God (5)
Pray that the saints, by the Lord’s grace, would learn to stand in awe of God’s Word; cling to it; not forsake it, swerve from it, turn aside from it, or stray from it; turn their feet toward it; keep, observe, practice, and do it; and walk in it and run the way of it (Psa. 119:161, 31, 87, 51, 102, 110, 59, 32-33).
Psa. 119:161—Princes have persecuted me without cause, / But my heart stands in awe of Your words.
Psa. 119:31—I cling to Your testimonies; / O Jehovah, do not put me to shame.
Psa. 119:87—They have almost consumed me upon the earth; / But I have not forsaken Your precepts.
Psa. 119:51—The proud have derided me greatly; / I have not swerved from Your law.
Psa. 119:102—I have not turned aside from Your ordinances, / For You have taught me.
Psa. 119:110—The wicked have laid a trap for me, / But I do not stray from Your precepts.
Psa. 119:59—I considered my ways / And turned my feet toward Your testimonies.
Psa. 119:32-33—I run the way of Your commandments, / For You enlarge my heart. / Teach me, O Jehovah, the way of Your statutes; / And I will keep it to the end.
