LORD, we daily need your mercy and goodness.
Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, (Psalm 107:2)
Jesus, you have redeemed us from the hand of the enemy. Thank you.
And gathered out of the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south. They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way; they found no city to dwell in. (Psalm 107:3-4)
Father, so many of your people are wandering in the wilderness. Have mercy on us and establish us.
Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. (Psalm 107:5)
Jesus, we hunger for more of you in our lives.
Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses. (Psalm 107:6)
Jesus, thank you for hearing our cries and delivering us.
And He led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city for a dwelling place. (Psalm 107:7)
Holy Spirit, lead us forth by the right way. Help us enter into your dwelling place with thanksgiving.
Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! (Psalm 107:8 )
Holy Spirit, give us thankful hearts for all your goodness to us.
For he satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. (Psalm 107:9)
Father, satisfy our longing souls with your goodness. Thank you.
A word received: I want to lead you step by step and week by week. Look to me each week for my guidance.
