A Fall Prayer of Petition and Blessing adapted from Psalm 5, 14, 52, 53 & 130

 

       Jehovah-Go’el –  The Lord our Redeemer.

Hear my words, O Lord.

In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice.  Think about my crying.  Hear my cry for help, my King and my God. For I pray to you. In the morning I will lay my prayers before You and will look up for You are my Redeemer.

Hear my words, O Lord.

You are not a God Who is pleased with what is bad. The sinful cannot be with You. The proud cannot stand before You. You hate all who do wrong and those who lie.

Will those who sin never learn? They eat up people like they eat up bread. They do not call on Your name.  They live in much fear.

 Hear my words, O Lord.

 

My heart is heavy for those who choose to live foolishly as if there is no 

 

God. Their ways are sinful and they continue to do bad things. There is no one who does good.

 God, You look down from heaven at us to see if there is anyone who understands and looks for You.  And we have all turned back to sin.

Is there no one who does good, not even one?  Do those who sin have understanding? This is why they do not call upon You? Why do we take pride in wrongdoing when we know Your loving kindness lasts all day long?

 Our tongue makes plans to destroy like a sharp knife.  We love what is bad more than what is good and we speak lies more than we speak the truth. We love words that destroy.  There we are, in much fear, when there is nothing to be afraid of.  Instead, we are put to shame because You have turned away from us.
