Prayer of Restoration
This week’s blog came about from an inspiration that I received while ministering Psalms 85 on today. I pray that it will somehow bless your heart in a manner that will provide you with the blessed assurance and spiritual strength to have victory throughout this new week.
“Only love can transform calculating justice into creative justice. Love makes justice just. Justice without love is always injustice.” -Paul Tillich-
Oh Lord! You have continued to show favor throughout Your land. You have restored the fortunes of Your faithful ones while taking away the guilt of all Your people. Our sins are pardoned as You have withdrawn all of Your wrath, turning from Your fierce anger.
Oh Lord! Restore each of us, for You are the God of our salvation. Please renounce Your displeasure with us. Will You forever stay angry with us? Will Your fury last throughout all generations to come? Please consider reviving us again so that we may rejoice in You. Please my Father, show us Your grace while forever granting us Your joy of Your salvation.
We are listening. What is Your verdict my Lord God? For You do in fact speak shalom to Your people, those whom you have deemed holy-but only if we do not relapse into the very folly that You have delivered us from. For Your salvation is near to those who fear You so that glory will be in our lives.
- Grace and Truth have met together
- Justice and Shalom have kissed each other
- Truth springs up from the earth
- Justice looks down from heaven
Our prayer on this day is that You my Lord will grant prosperity; as all that we do will become blessed by You, while Justice will walk before Your faithful seed, making our footsteps a path!
Grace and Peace
