Prayers for the Parched: Invitation to Change

Asking God a question is an invitation to have Him enter our heart and change what we want

Asking God a question is an invitation to have Him enter our heart and change what we want

“And now, Lord, what do I wait for?  My hope is in You.  Deliver me from all my transgressions. Do not make me the reproach of the foolish.”  Psalm 39:7-8

In Psalm 39:7, David asks

the Lord, “What do I wait for?”  By asking this as a question it becomes an invitation to have God enter your heart and change what you want.  It can also change what we wait for.  We wait for God to enlarge our thoughts.  We wait for God to give us his vision for solutions according to the riches of his glory.  We wait for God to introduce new passions into our hearts.

Deliver me from my temper

Let the fruit of patience develop in me

Deliver me from pride

Change my self-image to a healthy balance of courage and confidence

Deliver me from self-will

Let me remember that you are designed us for community

Deliver me from my transgressions

Thank you for the continual cleansing of Jesus’ blood
