COVID19 Call to Prayer – June 19: Verses for the King

19 June 2020

1.4 MINS

My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king;
my tongue is the pen of a skilful writer
You are the most excellent of men
and your lips have been anointed with grace,
since God has blessed you forever.
~ Psalm 45:1-2

This is an unusual song – a wedding song. But as well as speaking of the wedding of the King, it also speaks of the ultimate wedding – the marriage feast of the Lamb. We are to use our lips and our keyboard fingers to recite the praises of our King, Jesus.

“Now until the devil be good, God’s children shall never want enemies;
and he will never be good.”
Richard Sibbes

A Prayer of Repentance:
Lord, how quick we are to speak of ourselves, and slow to speak of You.
How quick we are to write in selfishness and anger, not selflessness and peace.
Forgive us and teach us to have ‘the pen of a ready writer’. For Christ’s sake, Amen.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving:
Lord – we thank You that we have so much to learn, see and say of Your beauty.
Help us to know, love and serve You more. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
