A Daily Prayer

PRC Media Blog

In a recent sermon on prayer from Exodus 30, I mentioned that I pray the same prayer for myself every morning as I sit down and prepare to read the Bible. This prayer is made up of various psalms. Pastor Steve suggested that it might be helpful to make that prayer available here. I use the acronym KILT-O, just because it makes it memorable.

K- Keep steady my steps according to your promise, and let no iniquity get dominion over me. (Psalm 119:133)

I- Incline my heart to your testimonies, and not to selfish gain! Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things and give me life in your ways. (Psalm 119:36-37)

L- Lead in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. (Psalm 25:5)

T- Teach me your way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name. (Psalm 86:11)

O- Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law. (Psalm 119:18)
