Prayer and Meditation on Psalm 37:4-7

Precious Father in Heaven, I confess that it is beyond the power of the flesh to delight in You, for the natural 
man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, but delights in the world, the flesh, and the devil.

Because of this, it is necessary that we mortify the old man with His deeds in order that we may walk in the 
Spirit and not fulfil the desires of the flesh.

The desires of the flesh are not our true desires, O Father, but they belong to Adam, our father after the 
flesh, and they are desires that bring death and ruin.

You, O precious Father, know what our true desires are and how precious it is when You quicken us by 
Your Spirit and we come to know them.

You will bring to pass all these precious desires, for You have said, “Blessed are those that hunger and thirst 
after righteousness, for they shall be filled.”

We do commit ourselves to You, O Father, and commit our way unto You, for You know what is best for 
us and will certainly bring it to pass.

We rest in You, O Father, and wait patiently for the time appointed for us to know the full salvation that You 
have given us in Jesus Christ, our Lord. In Him we have true righteousness and judgment, and we will shine 
as lights at noonday in the kingdom of our Father, for thus You have promised.

We will not fret over those who deny You and prosper in their evil ways. They war against themselves when 
they war against You, and cannot succeed in their wicked devices.

We are content to wait, O Father, for evil cannot go beyond the bounds You have appointed for it, for the 
wicked are like the chaff which the wind takes away. They shall vanish like the smoke and melt like wax in 
the fire.

Blessed be Your Name forever and ever, O Lord. And blessed be Your dear Son who has redeemed us 
from all iniquity. Amen and Amen.


4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, 
because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
