Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ Name to give You thanks and praise for the guidance that Psalm 15 gives me on how to live a life that honors You. David, right at the beginning of this Psalm, makes it clear that You want to teach me how to live a holy life. You want my standards to come from You and not the evils of the society that I live in. In order for me to have fellowship with You and be able to dwell with You, David says that I must do what is expressed in verse 2. “He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.”
Since words can be powerful and a reflection of what kind of relationship I have with You, direct me not to do any of the things David expressed were wrong in verse 3. “He who does not backbite with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor does he take up a reproach against his friend.” Thank you for giving me specific things that I can identify in my life that I can work on to become more upright and righteous.
I ask that You be a constant source of strength from which I can draw the energy needed to make any changes to be obedient to the guidelines in this psalm. Convict me if I stray from any of Your commandments and direct me to confession and repentance if needed. It is my heart’s desire to constantly know and love You more, and I ask that You do whatever is necessary to align my heart with Your perfect will and plan.
In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
