My Words… and Meditations

One of the most powerful prayers that one can ever make is,

“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord.”

 

My, I haven’t seen a good many things more powerful!

1. When you are stuck at a life junction, not knowing what direction to head, let your knees hit the ground as you ask,

“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord.”

 

2. When there’s a besetting sin or a harmless habit torturing and seeking to sift you like chaff, clutch your chest and cry in the dark,

“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord.”

 

3. When it’s a new day and you would set off, not knowing what good or evil lies ahead, look up and say,

“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord.”

 

4. When you feel excited and overwhelmed by a good you just received, and feel at a loss as to how you may praise, lift your arms heavenward and say,

“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord.”

 

5. When before you lies a question, an examination, an interview or a panel whom you must answer and though you have prepared, you feel highly inadequate, bow your head and plead,

“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord.”

 

6. When you suddenly meet trying folks or intimidating foes, people who won’t let you go until either of you draws blood, turn aside and beg,

“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord.”

 

So, you see my friend, there hardly is any situation in which we can’t go by and ask,

“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord.”

This prayer works! It does great wonders. It works because:

1. Because God is always close to His own and listening to our call.

2. Because God wants to make us like His firstborn son Jesus and this prayer aligns us with His life and how He would react to every situation.

3. Because the devil would rather that we do not pray but complain and try to find our own way out but God says to cast ALL our cares upon Him because He cares for us.

As for me, God’s love beckons and I must respond! Oh my God! We haven’t yet seen anything close to its end (the height, the width, the length and the depth of this love Ephesians 3:18-19) but I’m gonna dig in and enjoy it. Even if I falter due to my human frailty, I’ll yet raise my heart and voice in hope to say,

“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord.”

And so will I continue until the day that, along with the others in the beloved, I become perfected and ultimately pleasing to the Father.

 

What about you? What circumstance plagues your mortality and would rather you shrink, cringe or scream? Will you also respond to Love’s beckon in Jesus and pray,

“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord.”

I hope that you would.
