I was truly blessed this morning (6am). I always get up early and pray and study, but knowing that my other sisters were doing this at the same time, made me smile and I really got blessed!
Love this..thanks, sis for starting this thread!
don't forget the sisters in the different time zones, I think we have two in London (5 hrs ahead)
ok let me see if i understand this we are to praise God at those times oh ok i thought we were going to call the number and pray and praise. ok im sorry. we are to pray on our owns but in essence we are praying together.
Got my praise on this morning at 6:00 AM. Have a blessed day, ladies.
Laela, May I post this now? I'll be in a staff meeting at 12 noon. I will still be in prayer/praise mode during the meeting. I wanted to share this.
Father, thank you so much for Psalm 51... the prayer of repentence. If nothing shows your great measure of love for us, this prayer of King David, surely does. It shows us that no matter how great our sins, if we just come to you with a repentance heart, asking for your forgiveness, you never refuse us. You embrace us still as your beloved child, comforting our tears of repentence.
You have mercy on us, according to the MULTITUDE of your tender mercies.
Thank you Father, for this Prayer which brings us back to you... Thank for forgiving me, a sinner. :heart2:
Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine
