Righteous, just, and pure

With your help, heavenly Father, today I will do your will and please you in all things.

By your Spirit, Lord, I will be righteous, just, and pure in your sight.

In Christ, God of all peace, I will know you and delight in your presence.

In the midst of your people, we will praise you as Savior who created us as your children and gave us your fullness.

So let me today take hold of your exceedingly great and precious promises to participate in your divine nature.

Righteousness Will Reign Supreme

Confused the mind when fixed upon earth,
And earthly things turn eyes from heaven.
I’d see, O Lord, your saints abide
In eternal homes, where titles are dead,
And Mammon has lost its mad control,
Where love is pure, and labor is sweet.

What joys must circle our jealous Lord!
What peace surrounds your powerful Head!
Your kingdom at last will come to all,
That day that evil’s cast down to hell,
And righteousness will reign supreme,
The sea no more, in justice’ calm.

Mixed with Compassion

Your judgments are invariably right,
O God who knows, God who is light;
By righteousness the earth is blessed,
The saints encouraged, evil men suppressed;
Save me from smallness that always finds fault,
To critical words of the tongue bring a halt;
But help me judge correctly all things,
With justice that only your Word brings,
Mixed with compassion, that all confess
The God I know, who seeks to bless.

A sense of what is decent, proper, and right

Heavenly Father, in our hearts we need
A sense of what is decent, proper, and right;
This world holds irreverence as its creed,
And seeks to shock with evil in public sight. Continue reading

Statement designed to encourage prayer

Over on Travis Main’s website, Doug Dingley writes in “The Effectual Fervent Prayer of a Righteous Man”:

How tragic that a statement of encouragement by design becomes a statement of discouragement through our misunderstanding of it. As Christians, we are made righteous, not by living a perfectly sinless life, but by virtue of the fact that the Lord died for us, and His shed blood keeps us cleansed and forgiven of our sins (cf. 1 John 1:7-10). Therefore, God may hear our prayers!

Prayer: Intrinsic advantages of the righteous path

righteous-path

O LORD our God and dear Father in heaven, we joyfully come before your awesome existence on this new day as we join our hearts with others around the world in giving you the highest possible praise for all good blessings.

As we give you all glory and honor, help us to see the intrinsic advantages of the righteous path Christ leads us, instead of thinking of the right way as being cumbersome.

We offer this prayer in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

David Binckley Sr.

Lord, I want

Father, I want to be righteous, doing what is correct and right, in order to please you in all things and be holy as you are holy, so give me the righteousness of Christ in the sanctification of the Spirit. Continue reading

Fit me for this rarest air

Christian poetry and prayers

None is good, O God, but you,
None unfailing, none so true,
Only justice from your throne,
Blessed to know and to be known.

Life unending in your light,
Gone are pain and earthly fright,
Death is banished from the street,
In its midst the righteous meet. Continue reading
