Prayer for Tuesday

Encompass me with Your love and mercy, gracious Lord;
I have no security except in You.
I am perpetually exposed to the destructive forces of this existence.
I am in constant danger of losing the battle to
the very passions and desires of my own nature.
I can only submit myself to You
And believe that You will fulfill Your purposes in me.

Your love, O God, is steadfast;
Your grace is everlasting.

Even when I am beaten down by depression
And ensnared by my weaknesses and frailties
And my own lust threatens to devour me,
You are my God, and You will not let me go.

I am determined to serve You, O Lord.
May my life be a continual thank-offering to You,
I shall sing Your praises forever.

(Paraphrase on Psalm 57 by Leslie Brandt)

I give thanks to You, living and everlasting King,
for you have returned my soul to me with compassion.
Great is your faithfulness.
