A Summer Prayer of Petition and Blessing adapted from Psalm 37

Be happy in the Lord. And He will give you the desires of your heart.

 I will trust in the Lord, and will seek His goodness daily. His promises I will embrace. I will enjoy living well in His beautiful land and I will be well fed. I am happy living His way for He knows my every desire.

 Oh sweet friend, give your way over to the Lord. Do not be like those who do wrong, for they will soon dry up like the grass. Like the green plant, they will soon die. But God and His promises are forever. Trust in Him and He will make you as the light and your wise actions as the noonday. Rest in the Lord and be willing to wait for Him. Do not trouble yourself when all goes well with the one who carries out his sinful plans.  Stop being angry. Turn away from fighting. It leads only to wrongdoing.  For those who do wrong will be cut off. But those who wait for the Lord will be given the desire of their hearts.  A little while and the sinful one will be no more. You will look for their place and they will not be there. But those who put their trust in God will enjoy eternal happiness and have much more than they could ever need.

I will trust in the Lord and seek His goodness. I will enjoy His beautiful land. I will be happy living God’s way and will take comfort that He knows the desires within my heart. I will find peace resting and waiting. I have given my ways over to the Lord and trust Him. My being right and good is shown as the light and my wise actions as the noonday. The few belongings of those right with God is surely better than the riches of the ungodly. For the Lord guides each step I take and I willingly follow. In this obedience, I experience all His love, goodness and kindness.

Oh sweet friend, turn from sin and do good so you will live forever and experience the true joy of your salvation. For the Lord loves what is fair and right. He does not leave the people alone who belong to Him. They are kept forever. The mouth of the one who is right with God speaks wisdom. And their tongue speaks what is fair and good. The Law of his God is in their heart. His steps do not leave it. Wait for the Lord. Keep His way. He will give you a high place and you will find strength in Him during times of trouble.

 I will trust in the Lord, and will seek His goodness daily. His promises I will embrace. I will enjoy living well in His beautiful land and I will be well fed. I am happy living His way for He knows my every desire.
