Morning Prayer, March 22, 2014

Psalm 119:12, 13 "Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes. With my lips
have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth."

O precious Father, you teach us your words so that we may speak them. A baby's
mumblings are sweet and cute, but growing up in Christ means to learn and to know
how to speak your words. Dear Father, it is precious that you understand our groanings
which cannot be uttered, but how much more blessed we are when we can open our
mouths with words of praise and thanksgiving. Man rises to his highest when he
confesses with his mouth the Lord Jesus and believes in his heart that God has raised
Him from the dead.

When we present our bodies to You as living sacrifices, that includes our lips and our
voices that were created to speak your praises and your righteousness.

Ho 14:2 Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say unto him, Take away all
iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.

May it be so with us, O Holy Father, in the name of Christ, we pray.  Amen.
