I love Psalm 119:132-133; it teaches me a great way to pray to the Lord today. The writer presents to God three requests: “Turn to me and be gracious to me, as is your way with those who love your name. Keep steady my steps according to your promise, and let no iniquity get dominion over me.”
Be gracious to me.
Keep me steady.
Free me from the sin wanting to entangle me.
I notice the little phrase “as is your way.” The writer announces to himself and to God that he knows God will do these things because it is His nature and manner to do so. God turns to us and is gracious to us. He cannot help it. It is who He is.
I send the words to my family and pray this for my daughters. I text a few friends the simplicity and power of this prayer. What more would we need?
